A Stairway In The Sky

I climbed a stairway high into the sky, 
blowing a kiss, I had no tears to cry.
In a moment, all I knew was left behind;
on this quest, I felt blessed for joy I would find.
With a gentle nudge, my two feet stepped on air,
enveloped in truth yet not fully aware.
Pure love pulled me higher as I reached for the light.
The energy and peace were His gifts of insight.
Communing with Him, I was one with all creation, 
the unexplainable feeling, freedom and elation.
The warm winds fell silent, the clouds parted for me,
the sun shined on my face, I breathed eternity.
When I finally turned, I envisioned my life,
the glory of each dawn, the love, heartache and strife.
My time was not finished, I had more to do,
to run in the wind and swim in seas of blue,
to stumble and fall, then rise up again,
to be a mother, a mentor and friend.
He wanted me to love and worship Him more,
to forgive, live in grace, find peace and explore.
Following His lead, I promised to reach for the light, 
to live fully each day and to never lose sight
of this moment with Him, the loving smile on His face,
the beauty, connection, and joy of Heaven's embrace.
