Reception At The Heavenly Destination

Home far away in that shrinking mist of light
this moment is for earthly mortal passing
Up ahead glows a brilliant golden Heavenly sight
one that imagination fails in surpassing.

Well, the big gate opens, music hits my ears
I feel the angels now serenely flying
Here rests no sin, anger, hate or earthly fears
Truth living here banished all the lying.

Trumpets are now sounding, soft blasts that sing
joy and laughter now invading this soul
All is faith and love in a huge blazing golden ring
high above us, a throne on Holy hill's knoll

Earth and its memories now seen in a new light
pain and sorrow sent forever far away
All is sweet daylight, banished is dark of night
"Our Savior's Welcome" tis' all the angels say!

"Approach my son", booms out from throne on the hill.
Your soul is most welcome, as it is my Father's will!

Written as promised to him my tribute to his great poem,
This poem was inspired by Peter Duggan's great poem,
from his most recent poetry book,
titled -The Last Journey......

The Last Journey

I am going home , my song is over
The actor rests, his time has come
I am going to cross that mystic river
And gaze upon that clear bright sun.

Well I can hear the whisper calling
And telling me "your time has come"
The image dies the mask is falling
No more the many, there's just the one.

As energy is dissipating
All worldly cares they wilt to nil
There's no more wrath , there's no more hating
There is no thing just a space so still.

I say goodbye to all who knew me
But do not grieve me when I'm gone
I'll rest in peace my friends but someday
I'll come again to sing my song.

Peter Duggan

Reposted in its own thread and edited by me because first posting did not quite measure up and honor his great poem well enough to satisfy me .-Tyr

Both awesome poems. Make me think about writing a poem to be read when I've finished my time here.
