TITLE: Passport to Eternity

One day we will
Take a trip to eternity
Where we will live
In infinity...
We may have no
Knowledge
Of the reality
We are to see --
But it is for sure
That it will come to be...

Now we abide
In this realm
For this is all we know --
But it is for certain
That one day we will
Have the option to
Heavenward go...

When the time
Does arrive
In which we
Are to take
That forever flight
We must be prepared
With our passport
To be viewed
In heavenly light...

It must identify
Who we are --
It must be marked
With an eternal
Destination --
It must have
A holy stamp of approval
And be sealed by God
For it will be judged
By the conductor
As it is presented
And seen --
Acceptance will
Only occur
In the event
That we have been redeemed...

Without this passport
There will be
No boarding this flight
To home --
So when we
Live from day to day
We must be sure
That we have tilled
The soil of the garden
Of life where seeds
Of faith we have sown...

Boarding will occur
On a given day
And the approved passport
Issued by Our Savior
Will be the only way
That we will be allowed
To board the flight
That will carry us
Beyond the starry blue
And redemption
Will be the only
Accepted currency
To obtain this passport
By me and you...

Great poem, really smooth throughout. God bless ya, littlelight

Good clear poem. I've heard that one should try to avoid writing backwards just to fit the lines in like this one 'When the time
Does arrive' as it makes it seem contrived and less natural.
