Epiphany - Poem by Mike Gombas

I came to see you today
I had something’s I wanted to say
You’re house was empty, dark and shuttered
How can this be? I softly muttered
I walked away sad and dejected
I don’t know why; I don’t know what I expected
Somehow, I never felt more alone
I came to offer thanks; I came to atone
I wondered how many broken souls had been turned away
A locked door bared the entryway
They came in moments of desperate confusion
They looked for guidance; they looked for resolution
You’re house was empty, dark and shuttered
This can’t be right; I softly muttered
Then, I had an epiphany
What door can keep you away from me?
You’re house is not built of mortar and stone
You’re edifice is made of flesh and bone
To the locked door of our souls we hold the key
I must choose to keep you away from me?
