It’s Good To Be Back Home …

It’s Good To Be Back Home …

Standing on the threshold … one foot in the door

Death reached out its dark hand to pull me in

I’m here to escort you home … come in

Looking past him, into a void

Shadows everywhere … no sunshine, here

Flames began to leap, trying to burn my soul

I’m at the door of Hell … this isn’t where I belong

At the wrong door, I’m almost too weak

To try to go to the right door … where I belong

I’m not perfect, I’m not bad … I’m a good person

I don’t belong in Hell … I’m not staying here

Poof! My soul takes off in flight … I land on another step

In front of it, was another door … a door made of gold

I know instantly I’m where I belong

Heaven’s door … knock, knock … open the door

The door opened … golden light spilled out onto me

Warming my very soul … let me in, this is where I want to go

The angel of white … reached out to take my hand

She had a welcoming smile on her beautiful face

Her wings fluttered gently, creating a soft breeze

This is where I want to go … I see white figures walking around

I reached for her hand, I knew this was where I belonged

No matter, I wasn’t perfect … only as good as I could possibly be

As soon as she took my hand … she became still

It’s not time for you to come home, she said

Though, you do belong here in Heaven

No matter, you aren’t perfect … you’re good as you can be

You have to go back, now … you have a purpose

It’s up to you to find, know what it is you have to do

Stay good as you can possibly be …

So, you can come back to Heaven’s door … take my hand

Let me welcome you to Heaven, where you belong

Go, now … you can’t come home yet … one day you can

Poof! Ā I open my eyes to see … I’m in a hospital room

I hear people talking, see them standing over me

I smile up at them … it’s good to be back home!

  1. Hi Gloria! šŸ™‚

    I know this feeling well hun: I have spent my life trying to build a legacy of good and happy lives so I will always be remembered.

    Unfortunately people intent on making money destroyed me and then offered me Ā£60,000 compensation which I never received because they wanted MY story which had everything in it that their sick, twisted little hearts could desire.

    I’ve seen hell hun and I look forward to the final bow and I will either find oblivion or I shall fly! šŸ™‚

    Love and huge hugs! šŸ™‚
