meet me at heaven's gate
meet me at heaven's gate
at dusk when the
day is dimming

i went for a walk at dusk yesterday.
as i made my way down the sidewalk,
i could see it rise up into the horizon ahead of me towards downtown
the traffic lights turning from green, to yellow, to red
blurry in the distance

and the trees that lined the residential street
with their grand branches still full of green leaves in early autumn
they hid the sky
making me feel
as though i was walking towards the light at the end of the tunnel.

i realized we don't only walk towards the lite when we die...
we are walking towards the light our entire life,
always searching and aiming towards the highest purest form of ourself.

it's difficult to not be distracted by sorrow, doubt, and fear along the way.
i am trying to keep my eye on the light, sometimes it's not so easy.

inspired by a distant friend... shared with everyone in case you needed to hear it too...

Life is a pure flame,
and we live by an invisible sun within us.
Sir Thomas Brown
