Heaven Will Wait

If life were only heaven,

I imagine things would be

Lovely and complete!

But how then to transform?

What to rise above?

What thing to unlearn?

When and where to create a life,

If no time or space?

With no place to play,

Or twists of fate,

Just peace, love and light…

Could there be a way to graduate?

Thankfully heaven will wait for me.

And when I’m good and done,

The sweetest chance to re-unite, rest…

And re-ignite, life’s inevitably 

Dimming flame.

-Gilda Patricia

  1. Beautiful poetry Gilda and a piece which gives a very powerful message. Whatever our faith, the ups and downs of life are preparing us for something greater.
