“The Heavenly Gate”, a worship poem from L.Willows (God’s Glory, God’s Love, Heaven, and Earth)

The Heavenly Gate

I have seen a place where we all rise…
God’s symphony lifts clouds in a dance to the skies.
All of the heavens are opened at His Gate,
there in the roam of a Paradise state.

Kept by a sweetness, I felt someone near-
all of life’s friendships, everyone dear.
Touched by all heart songs, there I could dance
drawn like a bird who could fly into the expanse.

Here in the midst of All Love, I was called
into the blushing of winds that worshiped, enthralled.
Stepping out from all that keeps us astray
the Threshold had beckoned and swept me away.

There were no tears or burdens in this quiet place bright.
Sunshine of warmth beckoned all towards The Light.
I cast off one shoe, then the other, then Free!
Soon I was dancing with another like me.

I remember the Motion that swept through me there
cast from some other; as wind through reed’s prayer.
This, in holy, roam at God’s heavenly Gate
I danced, mingled with the winds in sweet moments elate.

Revelation 21:4He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.

Matthew 7:13-14 -Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.

“Loves’ Tender Reign”, a poem by Linda Willows

I stand upon such sacred ground
not born of this world, yet here in Heart’s mound.

Tender to touch, still fragile as dust,
I pray Love to be found in all Life’s abound.

Willing to open with the Graced gentle flow,
I cast all lost tears and lay rest in a glow.

Swept thus into, the whole of Love’s Reign;
my soul, I pray, is freed in God’s gain.
