Heaven's Gate (Childs Toni)

A man I met in my youth Came to me in the light of truth Beautiful dream that was Till he died one rainy fall There I was a child bride Widowed at nineteen, defied Never would I let him go Go to the place that Heaven knows On the evening of his death My shoulders felt a brushing breath Cold were his hands on my breast The man that I loved and put to rest He came to me and held me close We danced till dawn in the early snow There I felt him cry and cry I'll never leave, leave your side Oh, the madness This town thinks I'm mad Sixty years, has it been a dream? This man I'm haunted by, I see I'm eighty years and on my bed Awaiting death, that final breath He sits by and looks to me Soon you will come and be with me Now, I feel all warm inside As I leave this mortal body behind Seems it is eternal's way We're waltzing into Heaven's gate
