At The Gates

Across all time, on the edge of tomorrow
Death came to call, show no sorrow
Reaper in black, take me away from here
Lead me now, the journey holds no fear

Shut my eyes, and open to clarity
Before me stands, the Gates of Eternity

Keepers of soul, and strange memory,
At the Gates!
Resistant to time, Immortal Sentries,
At the Gates!
Sinners to hell, eternal misery,
At the Gates!
Martyrs and saints, holy delivery,
At the Gates!

The gates hang closed, perfect asymmetry,
The guardians wait, pass judgement on me,
Hell’s minion in black, fire eyes burn through,
Finger points at me, in my heart I knew,

Figure of white, follower of heavens light,
Flame in the dark, warrior against the night,
Visions of life, dance before my eyes,
Recalling who I was, before I died,

For good and bad, some happy some sad,
Final judgement, on the life I had,

Keepers of soul, and strange memory,
At the Gates!
Resistant to time, Immortal Sentries,
At the Gates!
Sinners to hell, eternal misery,
At the Gates!
Martyrs and saints, holy delivery,
At the Gates!

As I reflect, on a life of memories,
I see the truth, offered to me,
The gates swing shut as I enter eternity!
