As the Passage Nears

(Refrain) As the passage nears, release all of your fears. Your life is not done; it has just begun. Souls are rising up today. as prophesied for Judgment Day. The elderly appear as youth in this journey seeking the truth. We carry stardust on our toes, recalling moments time froze (Refrain) As the passage nears Release all of your fears Life will is not done; it has just begun As higher we climb toward the light, those left below just fade from sight. To greet all faithful brethren. a spirit comes and meets all men (Refrain) As the passage nears Release all of your fears Life will is not done; it has just begun
*I would like Bonnie Raitt to sing this song. She has such a soulful voice. Entry for Paula’s “Passages” contest.

    Yipppeeeee! I knew this was a grand one! One of my close Christian friends who studies the Bible says that heaven is only the beginning and that God has BIG plans for each and every one of us according to our gifts...I like to think that you will be heaven's official poetess and there is a writing room for these gifted Saints...(I know u must think that sounds crazy, but anything is possible....). CONGRATS, CAROLYN! Love, Gwendolen
