Downhill of Heaven

Downhill of Heaven

A Poem by Zach Colgate

When a sinner loves an angel . . .



Meet me downhill of heaven

Just before you reach the gate

It is here I’ll say goodbye

It is here that I will wait


One last kiss for a sinner

Just short of your Father’s eye

I would hate to see His shame

Just a kiss and one more lie


I’ll just wait outside

Until some future age

When you’re welcoming the Saints

To write their names upon that page


Please toss me a smile

If you see me from afar

A sinner as I am

An angel as you are


I’ll wait here forever

Just downhill of heaven
