No Heaven Without You

The end of my life the beginning of my death
I shall start to slowly inhale my final breath

Fast forwarding memories race through my mind
There is one in particular that I’m trying to find

Is it of the hottest night or the brightest day?
I really don’t know how could I possibly say

White capped waves to snow capped peaks
As I start to exhale I feel so tired and weak

Funny how everything has started moving so slow
As my mind races to learn what it shall never know

Suddenly everything ceases as clouds fill my eyes
For I have frozen in the memory of you and I 

Nothing but darkness here at the end of the race
As my final breath of air softly kisses your face

As I travel through the darkness I feel no fear
I’m lost in the taste from the salt of your tear

They say eternity is no more than an equation of time
Consequences of our life heaven or hell shall define 

There is one truthful fact regarding my fate
Our Lord Jesus Christ will meet me at the gate

But I won’t go in that’s something I could never do
There is no heaven for me until I walk in with you

I’ll sit down right there just outside of the gate
I’m certain for you the Lord will let me wait

I know you’ll be mad because I waited so long
Sweetheart you are the message inside of my song

And the message my song shall forever send
It could only be heaven if I have my friend

    Michael this was a most heartfelt and touching piece of poetry as only you could write my friend. thank you for reading my farewell addiction. believe me i know what you are going through, but don't give in, pray, pray and pray somemore that is what i did, it is hard to smoke when your praying. I also use to sing that kept me from smoking. i will pray for you.

    Wow. I'm not so sure my husband loves me that much. I hope so but...this is too beautiful. Sometimes I think you have the deepest love of anyone I know. And that's how good your poetry is too. I would cry my eyes out if my husband ever wrote this for me. Sincerely, deeply, incredibly beautiful. Sigh. Love, Shar

    Oh, Micheal. This is so beautiful. "the message inside my song" that line made me want to cry. To feel love that true, must be so fabulous. You have moved me again, and you truly are a wonderful writer. I say "yes" to your question. You may be a rose, so you can give it to your wonderful wife, "your song" God Bless to you and your lovely wife and family. Your friend, Christie
