Heaven's Gates

By Unearthly

I'm standing on a bridge looking over the sea
Watching the ships thinking of him and me

Looking back at the time when we were together
You lifting me high above as if I weighed no more than a feather

Listening to your laughter brought joy throughout my soul
Repairing my wounds and making every part of me feel whole

With all our happy memories floating through my mind
I'm almost postive that if I looked down our fingers would be twined

And I know very well that the connection between us was true
Even now I can think of nothing but you


I raise my head as the rain falls from above
Letting it soothe me, wash all my tension off

I'll never forget the feeling of the way you held me
The feeling of belonging and to finally be free

I was drowning in loneliness and endless of pain
But you could save me just by the mention of my name

Allowing me to see the goodness in your heart
And the strength of your love - you were giving me a fresh start

To begin a new life with you by my side
With tears overflowing, of happiness I cried


The water from the rain blending with my tears
Knowing I'll never let you go after so many years

I take a deep breath and with my last decision
I take the final step tears blurring my vision


I jump with  a smile and with the curiosity of what awaits
Waiting to reunite with you at heavens gates

    It's never as easy as you can imagine it to be :( And I'm sorry to hear that, I truly am. It's a horrible thing to go through
