The gates of forever

The gates of forever

Few run swiftly
Through the gates
Fewer know whence the gates
The forever gates

They open but one way
To bless or not the day
Only shades pass the other way
Nothing to do but pray

Remember me when am gone
All the good I have done
Maybe some words I have said
My shape on the bed

The forever gates
They carry a date for all that live
Do not think of them as baits
But surely something must give

And when it’s time
Everything just rhymes
You hear the sound as it grates
The forever gates
