Saint Peter’s Response …… [inspired by “………..and if………..”, a poem by PH member Ruth Walters; SHORT; humour/humor; love; religion; afterlife; fantasy] Poem by Bri Edwards

When Ruthie and her long-time gentleman lover.....
died and the pearly gates of Heaven did discover,
it was old St. Pete who barred their way and asked:
“Which of you lived without sin, though it be a frightful task? ”

They'd both sinned, a great deal in fact, and 'together', if truth be told,
but Ruth spoke up without fear and said “We both did”. Ruth was bold.
Then to her and her lifetime lover (and fellow sinner) Saint Peter finally said:
“Ruthie, I'm glad you're here, AND Surprise! ALL get in here when they're dead.”

Poet's Notes about The Poem

hey, 'humor' is as good a topic as any for this, i hope! Ruth Walters is one of my favorite poets to read. here is the poem she wrote which inspired me.

'..............and if...............

and if in truth our love's to be eternal
until the sun and moon refuse to shine,
then happiness is ours to own forever
withstanding all the ravages of time.

and if we reach the pearly gates of heaven
and the angels ask me whether you have sinned,
I'll tell them we were sinners both together
and without you I'd rather not go in.....
