Heaven's Doorway

Written by: Caleb Smith

The bitter pain and darkness is only for a moment
Heaven's gentle song stirs me
From a dream I wake into another
And the cloud of my confusion is a stairway
I climb

I watch each step I take as a day
Each day is a transleucent picture of where I've been
I feel no pride or shame
I feel only compelled to climb
Higher

I begin to see things without a glance
There are angels beside the stair
Their own eyes are radiance defined
And I look to them with gladness and pain
Glorious

Time ceases to have meaning as I walk
The life I've been watching becomes a moment
I know in this moment I've been true
And I've been standing here all along
Waiting

There is no doorway to look upon
Only two winged sentinals guarding invisible joy
And as I cross the unknown, all unknown dies
In a blinding stroke of the greatness that is
Heaven
