HERE IN HEAVEN (11:59)
It’s Tuesday the 1st of November 2011;
Staring down from my cloud I realise, I don’t belong here in heaven.
I stood at the gateway begging for just a little more time;
The hands on my clock no longer move, a never ending minute which is stuck on 11:59.
I see my Nan & Granddad sitting with all my lost family and friends, they all reaching out for me to stay;
An angel whispers through my mind “you’re destiny is not yet over, I think you have just lost you’re way”.
I stand motionless at the top of heavens stairway in the sky;
I look down watching my life, as angels wipe away their tears, waving me goodbye.
I slowly walk down the stairway, with each step I move a little further away from heavens light;
As I take my first step back into the world, my angels echo out “Remember it was always you’re destiny to write”.
