Today I knocked on Heaven’s door
As it was locked, just like before
An Angel finally came to see
To what I sought, on bended knee.
The Angel asked, What brings you here?
Dear child on earth, what do you fear?
Stand up now please, I see your eyes
They’re filled with tears, why do you cry?
Upon my chin, her hand she placed
As her wing passed, tears to erase
A touch so soft, my cheek now dry
‘My heart’s heavy, that’s why I cry.’
‘I feel the weight, my world, too much
I need to feel, my savior’s touch
Such pain I feel, ready I am
To meet my Lord, I come again.’
I said, ‘you see, I’ve been before
There’s many times, I’ve knocked this door
But yet each time, no answer came
Turned back to earth, each time in shame.’
That’s when I heard, the angel say
Dear child you’ve erred, it’s not that way
You see my Lord, told me convey
His words to you, this very day.
It’s not your time, to join him yet
Your job on earth, do not forget
Incomplete work, you have there still
And this is why, not yet, his will.
When work fulfilled, you shall return
To join him here, no more to yearn
Your work on earth, just a short while
His home is yours, in time, dear child.
Return now child, to what you must
Our Lord’s promise, you must have trust
All things to come, as meant to be
Will be fulfilled eventually.
When it’s the time, to be called back
You’ll hear his voice, a knock to lack
Just heed his call, as your name’s read
For in his book, your name is said.
So return now, fulfill his will
Be mindful child, you know the drill
Listen to hear, his voice to lure.
No knock needed, on Heaven’s door.
