Heaven’s Gate

We climbed that lighthouse, at least a dozen times
248 steps up, and 248 steps down
Catching our breath at the summit, we’d wait
We called the top, Heaven’s Gate
For it was as high, as the angels fly
From there we’d watch the sun, paint the clouds in the sky

At the ground below, I’d often stare
Close my eyes and imagine, I was an angel up there
I would fly from Heaven’s Gate above, to the sand far below
Swoop down, then back up I’d go
If I were an angel, I’d do that for fun
Then I would go back, to watch the painting sun

But as fate would have it, my sun finally set
And when it did, I was full of regret
For she was my sun, the light of my life
The reason I existed, she was my wife
When she saw me, I wasn’t alone on the sand
For I was walking with another, hand in hand

She saw me, when I stole that kiss
Which ended 10 years, of marital bliss
She saw me, then I saw her turn away
She left me, on the sand that day
Forever on the sand, alone I remain
With a broken heart, and full of shame

I climbed that lighthouse, one more time
248 steps up . . .
I looked for my sun, but she wasn’t around
So this time, I didn’t walk down
At the ground below, I stared . . .
Closed my eyes and imagined, I was an angel up there

Then I flew from Heaven’s Gate above, to the sand far below
Swooping down, but this time back up I didn’t go
I wasn’t an angel, and this was the wage for what I had done
For I was the cause, of my setting sun
My heart stopped beating, long before I leapt
This was the only way, that I could forget

Eternally on the sand, I sleep
Now when the angels swoop down, they weep
For I will never be among them, to fly back to Heaven’s Gate
That kiss on the beach, had sealed my fate
Forever on the sand far below, I lie
Never again to see the sun, paint the clouds in the sky

We climbed that lighthouse, at least a dozen times
248 steps up, and 248 steps down
But the last time, my sun wasn’t around
So . . . I didn’t walk down
