Treasure Island

Roxanne Dubarry

(October 4,1954 / Seattle, Washington)

We Will Fly Away


I told my sister, Lynn, one day,
'We'll Fly Away someday.'
'We have already flown away, '
she replied to me carefully.

'You have seen visions of 'The Rapture, '
I honestly told her. I did not
hold on to her hands, please
try and understand if you can.

I have seen 'visions' of angels flying
to and fro. I have seen flying
crosses in the air, to help
me forget my many worries
and cares in this life.

Thankyou, Lord Jesus Christ,
for being my bright and
shining candle light.

I have seen 'light visions' of
saints leaving the ground-
completely heaven bound.

What are 'light visions' you
may say? And by the way
I took no 'happy pills'
to give myself any thrills.

First, off they are all in
bright shining lights,
all dressed up in white.

I have only seen outlined
forms, not faces of
different people, or
places.

We quickly leave the ground,
and are heavon bound.
I have never seen us
reach our heavenly
promise land.

But I know our heavenly
promise land is real.
If you really want
to know? Jesus Christ-
Himself told me so!

Love in Christ Jesus!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Our visons of the Rapture have taken place throughout the passing
years of time itself. I must admit, the 'visions of the flying
heaven bound crosses, ' was inspired by watching Christian televison. But it is through the cross that we reach our heavenly
promise land.

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
