A Meadow In Heaven

Life
As you
Knew it is
Over; Complete

Take a moment, breathe
I know it’s overwhelming
But you’ll get used to this place
Everyone loves it

Check out this view
This is the
Meadow
Of
No fear
Where you will
Always feel safe

Every single meal’s
An all-you-can-eat buffet
Not possible to gain weight
Don’t worry ’bout that

No alcohol
But you won’t
Need it
Cause
Nothing
Will bother
You anymore

Loved ones will arrive
Eventually, but for now
You can relive all your dreams
Watch them come to life

This is the path
Follow me
Heaven’s
Here

    I’ve heard that one’s entire life flashes through in the last 15 minutes of life. Somehow, your poem took me to that zone. And I won’t be waiting for anybody to arrive.
