Take Me To Heaven, Lord

Could You take me to a place where streets are gold?
Where worries are no more?
The place I can call my home.

Take me to a place where tears are never shed?
Where demons have never dared to tread?
That place I've heard so much about!
O' God I've even heard it shout!

How can I reach that place?
I'll do whatever it takes.
 Save me by Your mercy and grace!

The Beginning & The End,
You were there when I was born again.
Be with me till this painful end.
Be there to take me up once more!
Gone from here,
Going through the Heavenly doors.

A poem I wrote in 2009...  but never published for anyone to read. I had a way with words back then. I suppressed many desires and talents the past few years but they are all coming back to me again. Maybe it's because I became too busy? Or focused on other things going on in my life? Either way, I want to be sensitive enough to write straight from my heart and paint beautiful canvases of emotion. As I grow older, I do not want to lose talents God has given me. I want to flourish and grow!
