Closer to heaven

The clock ticks;
echoing over the new limestone tiles
as I sit to write.
At the end even if I haven’t
written a good poem;
I’ll be closer to heaven
than when I began.

Then I won’t be able
to turn back,
hesitate, doubt or lose a
struggle because I’ll be dead.
You say eternal life starts on
earth but sometimes it’s
as though death starts here
before you die.
