Daphne

She stands at the doorway of Heaven

She has not seen this presence before

Just a moment before she fell asleep

She prayed for peace and forgiveness

 

She stands at the base of the pearly gates

She didn’t know that her time was up

She had so much to accomplish yet

She fears she cannot go back

 

She wakes up in her bed, alone

The sheets were twisted around her

If she looked carefully enough

She could discern the presence of an angel

 

She sighed, giving thanks for the day

As she readies herself for church

She has a heart full of gratitude

For she was given another chance

 

She sees her doctor tomorrow

He will tell her impossible news

But for now she walks with the Host

And she has peace nestled in her heart
