Back To Earth

I was knocking on the gates of Heaven
but nobody would let me in,
a voice said this is a peaceful place
and you are causing an unholy din.

I said I've come to visit a loved one
lost to me a few years ago,
the voice said you will be together
but not until it's your time to go.

Up here there are only vibrations
when their separate lives are done,
they come home as a collective
and all merge together as one.

I find that hard to understand
could you find a way to explain?
The voice then said it's very complex
but the idea is quite plain.

Cast a stone into the ocean
drops of water fly up free,
but when their time is up they fall
and again become part of the sea.

You must return to your world
just go back to Earth,
for only when your freedoms gone
will you realise it's worth.

Just then I heard another voice
and it wasn't from Heaven's gate,
I suddenly understood the words
"Wake up or you're going to be late!"
