Heaven, Are You There?

 

Is this the way to Heaven?

If I knock, will I be let in?

Or are they going to tell me it’s not yet my time?

And send me back to earth.

Will I cry when I get there?

Will I sob, and will I plead?

Will I die if I’m not invited in?

And die again when I return.

Will I learn something new about my life?

Will they tell me that I’ll be okay?

Will they reassure me??

And come back to earth having learnt something new.

Am I going to survive?

Am I going to thrive?

Or will it be more of the same?

I guess I’ll find out.

I’m now back on earth.

And I can’t go back.

I can move forward though.

Even when it feels like I’m going back.

Heaven won’t let me in.

But earth does.

And that is what I have to take.
