Another poem that reminds me of the unexpected mercy of God. I believe the author is Len Dean

I dreamt death came the other night

And heaven’s gate swung wide.

With kindly grace an angel came

And ushered me inside:

And there to my astonishment

Stood folk I’d known on earth,

Some I had judged as quite unfit

Or but of little worth:

Indignant words rose to my lips

But never were set free,

For every face showed stunned surprise
