The Gateway to Heaven

 Some call this the “Gateway to Heaven….”
If only heaven were so easily accessible…
Though the stairs be steep
I’d undertake the climb today.

Is there a price of admission?
Who stands at the gate to take tickets?
Do I have to make a reservation?
Should I wear sturdy shoes?

I have no doubt
From the top there is a fine view…
Yet another hill to climb.
Finding Heaven can be exhausting.

I’d rather think we don’t have to walk a hundred miles
On our feet or crawl on our knees….
We don’t even have to always be good.
Trying to be perfect is the wrong way to get to Heaven.
Heaven comes to us within an open heart
No matter where we are,
No matter what time of day,
Whether sky is gray or blue.
