Heaven's Stair

by Stephanie   Dec 3, 2015


Crying on the steps of heaven's stair,
How was I to know you wouldn't be there?

All my prayers and wishes,
turned to ashes
The fire in me has died
For I passed on my torch to a former flame Who surely didn't deserve my warmth

Is it he or He who is there for me?
Silent words fall on loving ears
Just the same as loving words fall on silent ears I don't know what to believe For I can't believe what I hear Weren't you supposed to protect me from being deceived?
How was I to know you wouldn't be there?

Yet again I am in purgatory waiting for my sentence.
Do I die alone or do I die alone in my mind's eye?
Heaven or hell,
I don't know which is worse
Neither seem to break my heart's curse
Voices say only time will tell

Crying on the steps of heaven's stair,
How was I to know you wouldn't be there?
How was I to know your stair would lead to nowhere?
