One more post before I am completely frazzled -
There were several keys by the door
I wonder what they open
Would it be to places unknown
Would it be to challenges undone
There were several keys by the door
Am I willing to chance it
Maybe I will open just this one door
I took the keys from the ring and opened the door
I saw life I’d lived and many friends were around
I was so happy with this key I had found
I looked all around and was happy – filled with glee
Another door I happened to see
Emboldened by my first opening attempt
I took another key and went straight to the test
I turned the second key and was met with the dark
For this second key opened the door on
Things that I didn’t want to remember
Or for anyone to see
Things I had done wrong and people I hurt
I ran as fast as I could to the next door you see
No longer happy or filled with glee
The third door was heavy and hard to get open
As I pushed it aside I looked and I saw
Blank spaces and waiting people
Now I can see
This is the future and how I do is up to me
There were several keys by the door…

(big hugggssssssss) Oh Paul, I can feel the yearning in your words, sweet friend, my heart goes out to you and while life may be an endless hotel filled with check-ins everywhere, that there will be times where we can just relax in our joys beds and take a dip in the pool of promises! (sigh) This is excellent, sweet friend, I love this, we all love you so much! You have such a beautiful heart, sweet Paul, thank you for sharing!



May love and light always shine upon you!

Love,
Noah Eaton
