Standing At The Gates

This was written for Crimson’s Creative Challenge #50

CCC#50

CCC#50

The gates are locked

please let me in

Don’t leave me standing

I must come in

It is my time

please set me free

Don’t leave me out

please let me in

I know I’ve sinned

please don’t rescind

Open up the gates

please let me in

Here I will remain

waiting and anticipating

For the gates to

open for me

Heaven is where

I want to be

  2. Susan! You and I ended up at the same place, but on entirely different terms! Like Crispina, I hope they don’t keep you waiting!

  3. I suspect I’ll be standing outside those gates for quite some time. 🙂

  5. Oh, that sent shudders through me. Well, I hope, Susan, when the time does come, that you find the gates open for you. 🙂
