Building Stairs To Heaven

For all the tears I shed means
I'm getting closer to you as I'm building
stairs to Heaven.

I dread the moment I no longer
shed my tears as that's when the stairs
will end, But I predict that to be in
about eleven years from then.

I fear before my stairs are built
you and I will be on my stairs I built
on our way to Heaven .
And the ones
I couldn't build just appear like a magic
carpet and we just glide our way to
Heaven's door the way we were meant to
be.
Side by side and then I disappear
into your arms where I'm whole again
looking at the baby Blues.

    Yes, never stop building those wonderful stairs unto Heavens throne! For I absoluty and surely believe that they shall never be built in vain! Excellent write of self awareness and inspiration dear Cheryle! A true light of professions and words, as steps upon those sacred stairs! Beautiful write dear lady! Love and warmth always to you and your loves, John!:)

    I like the way this poem ended, for it does have a blues motif. I am sure the way to heaven is paved with many a beautiful tears - those that flow for others. Great poem!
