written for contest. Going to Heaven
I Saw Heaven
By Lisa Noe
Up in heaven, he’s the one who gives
I’m told that’s where he always lives
Surrounded by angels to many to name
Gone in a flash, I’d like to do the same
A shape in the sky, it’s time to die
I ask the angel “why oh why”
She looked at me with a grand smile
For that look I’d walk for miles
The angel spoke “please don’t be afraid,
Because all your life, you have prayed.”
I looked at her beauty and was entranced,
Where you will be, is quite advanced.
As I got closer to a big old light,
I thought how beautiful, a delight.
We got there and there I saw,
My grandparents and my Pa.
Happiness and joy is what I could feel,
Was not a dream it was so real.
“You can’t stay” said a voice to me.
You’re destined to bring us peace.
