Closed Doors

Poem By Dr. Antony Theodore

There will be doors
that close before you.

When a door closes
preserve hope and faith.

Do not worry.
Sooner or later
a greater opportunity
will come on your way.

If the closed door had opened
It would have blocked this new life.

This new opportunity presents itself
While the old door closed before you.
- -
I now understand the mystery
Of closed doors and life’s path.

I await the new opening
with a heart full of hope.

Comments about Closed Doors

Doors are always closed before me! ! From left and right; but, I await the new opening. Nice work.
Very wunderfull....................... I await the new opening with a heart full of hope.
i like the meaning behind this poem. I believe in every word that you penned. The beauty of this poem lies not in seeing the closed door but in the one that you will find open. Motivational. Liked it.
Totally loved every bit of this poem! You've explained the way of life superbly with your concise and vivid imagery. We open and close doors every moment of life even though we usually don't notice or comprehend this way of life unless we take the time to think about it. Our interior lives add to the mystical probability you have depicted in this truly wonderful poem. Thank you for sharing it. RoseAnn
Very inspiring, thank you.

If you die before me
I would jump down into your grave
and hug you so innocently
that angels will become jealous.

from the mighty heavens

To keep as a treasure in my heart.
