I believe there is a heaven
And think there is a hell
I ponder both and question
But still no one can tell

I wonder when the end will come
And if there'll be a friend
As age does come, so do the thoughts
As well as some pretend

No one knows the truth that waits
We’re in a line of twist and turn
All doing just the best we can
And on the way do slowly learn

We know if we are good or bad
We know if God or devil smiles
We ponder what we’ve seen and had
And how we’ve walked our many miles

We walk with God and sin for hell
We’re humans and that’s what we do
It’s knowing and the difference tell
To then which gate will let us through

A grain of time, a tear drop fell
A life that’s lived, then peace or hell
A stair case up, or one below
Either way, one day we’ll know

Each day we live the best we can
Be right or wrong, just who can say
Our time a test or maybe not
That is what we'll know some day

So worry not this day of fate
For it will take its course with we
Enjoy this life before too late
Let’s live to live, both you and me

I love this! Life is short! Enjoy!

Remember me with a smile on your face, or please don't remember me at all.

Great poem Rick but one thing I'm sure of, you will never have to worry about down below, you will climb those golden stairs for sure, but if I finish up, up there, I'll try and send you down a message and let you know what it is like. Enjoyed your post Rick, take care.

Hi Bill, one day at a time my friend, more precious becomes that which we can not keep.

Yo Rick,

Don't fret over it.  It'll all be a big surprise anyway.
