Whilst I Slept.




Whilst I Slept.

Whilst I slept I dreamt of a place, 

Where the only words spoken were of forgiveness and grace.

A calmness overtook me, pervading all thought.

I slept deeper and with more determination; that place I sought.

An unfathomable scene was beginning to unfold,

When all of a sudden my body shivered in an unfamiliar cold!

Just at that moment when all started to become clear,

I awoke with a shuddering, my eyes awash with a tear.

What had been shown to me, in that window of time,

Was a glimpse of a heaven that can never be mine.

This place exists. This I know is true.

If it’s not open for me, then maybe the gates will open for you!

About Daniel Kemp

Daniel Kemp, ex-London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver never planned to be a writer, but after his first novel —The Desolate Garden — was under a paid option to become a $30 million film for five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company what else could he do? Nowadays he is a prolific storyteller and in May 2018 his book What Happened In Vienna, Jack? became a number one bestseller on four separate Amazon sites: America, UK, Canada and Australia. Although it’s true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows best; murders laced by the mystery involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he writes, namely: Why? A Complicated Love, and the intriguing story titled The Story That Had No Beginning. He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication, been described as —the new Graham Green — by a managerial employee of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of signing events, and he has appeared on ‘live' television in the UK.
