I Thought I heard a Trumpet

I Thought I heard a Trumpet

I thought I heard an echo like a trumpet far away..
It was carried on the breezes;
That swept in across the bay.

I listened at my window as I watched the eastern sky..
light up with wondrous lightening;
and the clouds began to cry.

I thought I heard a Trumpet;
and a loud victorious shout....raising high above the thunder...
With Angels all about,.

I wakened from my the darkness on my bed...
To a glorious rowdy ruckus
Loud enough to wake the Dead.

I thought I heard a Trumpet, It was a sweet surprise    
As I rose to meet my Savior.
And to look into His eyes.

Ah, what a beautiful ending to a well-lived life. This is so poetically sweet I wonder if you wrote it for a friend who recently passed? It would give many comfort.
