What is Heaven?


Recommended Posts


What is Heaven?

I sat and watched
while my husband took his last breath
and escaped his body.
I wondered 
where did he go?
Where will I go when it is my time?

My religion dictates
I believe in an afterlife
and I do.

Is it the mansions of His kingdom?
Did I do enough?
Would I live upstairs or down?
Will I see those
who went before,
will they welcome me?

Or is it simply a resting space
of peace and fulfillment?
I'm leaning this way.

But it doesn't really matter to me now.
While I'm here
I will focus on the moment.
What can I build?
Who can I serve?
What can I leave?
For me the answers to heaven can wait.
