Heaven's Gates

Heaven's Gates

"Thy Will be done" is how I pray
but how do I start out my day?

Does God come first or is it rare
that I reach first to Him in prayer?

Alarm clock rings.  I've got to run.
It's long before the rising sun.

The world awaits as Heaven parts,
but I'm on time as 'chemo' starts.

Questions many, but answers few.
And prayer to God is overdue.

Again, again, I sin, I sin.
I've failed to do God's will again.

My best is never good enough
as God sees through my selfish stuff.

It's sobering to see life's end.
I miss family, miss my friends.

My best friend though- He still awaits.
I'll see Him soon at Heaven's gates.

I do my best while Christ awaits.
Grace draws me through those Heaven gates.
