"Heaven's Gate" by mountainwriter49
Heaven's Gate

Oh, how I ponder God’s most grand design
for man and how he chooses to approach
life’s many choices of what’s right or wrong;
of lust or love; of verve or darkest nights...
While thinking of my own mortality,
my winsome Bacchus fills my glass again.
I’m lost within life’s grand symphonic score
while drinking wine—my muse is now revived.
But now she teases me, and pulls me towards
the evening moon when I but wish to soar
among the stars amidst the Milky Way
where hidden therein is sweet Heaven’s Gate.
It is with open arms and longing heart
the pond’ring man shall seek the Lord’s intent.
