heaven’s door

but not without hope
colors faded
by a morning mist

digging deep
to release the courage
hidden within

scavenging for the strength
that’s rooted to one’s soul

it’s not buried
rotting and decaying

it has not departed
fleeted or
fluttered away

it is bound
it is the grounding
of one to another
the invisible
unbreakable tie
that binds the universe

it is you
it is i

it is everything
within one’s grasp
it is the task
of each day
it is the challenges
we take
we fail
we succeed

we indeed
become stronger

when there is that one last wish
that one breath more
that is longed for

we decide
when to knock
on heaven’s door
