One Red Door

Anya lay not sleeping,

She knew her time was near,

Silently she remembered ,

And shed a single tear.

 

It was very long ago,

When she had made a choice.

In a land so far away,

Before she had a voice.

 

Mys-tery was in the air,

The scent of flowers strong.

There was music everywhere,

A lilting gentle song.

 

She felt that she was beckoned,

Requested to be here.

So she stood before a door,

Trembling in her fear.

 

Within a moment that had passed,

And then she felt at peace.

Now she had a choice to make,

But would her life then cease?

 

“I did not have the courage,

To take the path I should.

And so I turned away that day,

And lived the life I could.”

 

Now the time had come again,

She knew what she should do.

All it took was just the will,

And she could walk right through.

 

Through the doors beyond the pale,

Are wonders from within.

If you have a willingness,

A new life can begin.
