It's Good To Be Back Home ...

It's Good To Be Back Home ...
By Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee

Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee ... 2014

Standing on the threshold ... one foot in the door
Death reached out its dark hand to pull me in
I'm here to escort you home ... come in

Looking past him, into a void
Shadows everywhere ... no sunshine, here
Flames began to leap, trying to burn my soul

I'm at the door of Hell ... this isn't where I belong
At the wrong door, I'm almost too weak
To try to go to the right door ... where I belong

I'm not perfect, I'm not bad ... I'm a good person
I don't belong in Hell ... I'm not staying here
Poof! My soul takes off in flight ... I land on another step

In front of it, was another door ... a door made of gold
I know instantly I'm where I belong
Heaven's door ... knock, knock ... open the door

The door opened ... golden light spilled out onto me
Warming my very soul ... let me in, this is where I want to go
The angel of white ... reached out to take my hand

She had a welcoming smile on her beautiful face
Her wings fluttered gently, creating a soft breeze
This is where I want to go ... I see white figures walking around

I reached for her hand, I knew this was where I belonged
No matter, I wasn't perfect ... only as good as I could possibly be
As soon as she took my hand ... she became still

It's not time for you to come home, she said
Though, you do belong here in Heaven
No matter, you aren't perfect ... you're good as you can be

You have to go back, now ... you have a purpose
It's up to you to find, know what it is you have to do
Stay good as you can possibly be ...

So, you can come back to Heaven's door ... take my hand
Let me welcome you to Heaven, where you belong
Go, now ... you can't come home yet ... one day you can

Poof!  I open my eyes to see ... I'm in a hospital room
I hear people talking, see them standing over me
I smile up at them ... it's good to be back home!
