Heaven's Doorway

This long journey has lasted a lifetime.
And I’ve stopped many times on the way.
Taken detours I’m not very proud of.
Some that led me a little astray.

Now my travels have all been concluded.
I have finally reached the last door.
Will my spirit be cleansed as I enter?
Like the ocean waves clean up the shore.

There’s a peacefulness floating around me.
A strange mist that obscures a clear view.
And a light up ahead shining toward to me.
Like a signal that’s coaxing me through.

There’s a warmth that surrounds me so sweetly.
And it’s lifting me close to the light.
I am not really sure how I know it.
But I feel I will soon be all right.  

While I stand to be judged for my actions.
I recall all the good and the bad.
All the love that I gave and was given.
Every sorrow that I ever had.

Will I be reunited with loved ones? 
Are they waiting on the other side?
Do they know that I’m coming to join them?
For this final and ultimate ride.

    When you finally DO get to that doorway- don't ask so many questions! Just GO! Kidding, this is an exquisite entry for the contest- GL to you, though I don't think you'll need it!

    You left it a question and that was fine!! I am sure for you they will be there!! I think for nearly everyone, the loved ones are waiting on that other side. Nicely described, samia.
