Though I've thought about it muchly,

I have no idea what Heaven is like,
or if I will be welcome there.

I've had hunches before,
but many of them proved wrong.

In my place of childhood,
a narrow village next a sluggish river,

there is a reassuring sign
kept near its doorway:

Bothell Welcomes You
For A Day Or A Lifetime.

Life carried me away
from there some time ago,

but I still wonder if,
when my turn comes,

despite my faithless life and multitude of sin,
Eternity might be edited in.
