Take These Lines To Heart
I dreamed death came to me one night
and heaven’s gates flew open wide ..
With kindly grace St. Peter came
and ushered me inside.
There to my astonishment
were friends I had known on earth ..
Some I had labeled as unfit
and some of little worth.
Indignant words flew to my lips
words I could not set free ..
For every face showed stunned surprise
No one expected me.
