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, they did discover,
it was old St. Pete who barred their way, then asked:
"Which of you lived without sin, .....
though it be a frightful task? "
They'd both sinned, a great deal in fact, and 'together', truth be told,
but Ruth spoke up without fear and said "We both did"; Ruth was BOLD.
Then to her and her 'lifetime lover/fellow sinner' Saint Peter finally... said:
"Ruthie, I'm glad you're here, and, SURPRISE! ! ! ! ,
...........you ALL get in here when you're dead."
Poet's Notes about The Poem
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.....
