Gather at the River - Glimpses of Epiphany contest

We shall gather at the river
Immortal words of a hymn
That believers of spiritualism
When they meet  will sing

People that go beyond the grave
Returning with messages apart
For the folks they  left behind
Patching up a broken heart

Some people think that this  is wrong
Their  religion tells them so
Would they not listen to words
their beloved's wanted them to know

When at deaths door i knocked 
Why was I sent back home

My epiphany  was my journey
As along death's trail i walked
My time wasn't the right time
So the gates  were firmly locked

    There are always a string of memorable events in our lives. The very things that define, encourage, enlighten, and sometimes almost destroy us. Some call it fate or destiny, while some say there is no such thing. I like to believe in fate, and don't see that it contradicts free will. Fate then to me is a test, some harder than others. I often recieve inspiration from your words, the analysis never ending. Great work here and belated congratulations.
