Through The Gate

I

I EMBARK UPON A JOURNEY
TO PARADISE, IN MY MIND
LEAVING THIS WORLD
BEHIND

TO A PLACE WHERE ALL
IS IRRELEVANT
WHERE BEAUTY AND LOVE
ARE PREVALENT

A LAND WHERE ALL MY DREAMS
COME TRUE
A LAND WHERE
EVERYTHING IS NEW

I FIND THE GATE
BY THE FIRST STAR ON THE RIGHT
I NEVER MISS
ITS WARM GLOWING LIGHT

AND IMMEDIATELY THROUGH IT
RUNS THE RIVER OF LOVE
HIGHLIGHTED BY ANGELS
FLYING ABOVE

WITH THE MOUNTAINS OF MIST
AHEAD IN PLAIN VIEW
A DEFINITE DIRECTION
TO PURSUE

MEADOWS, AND LUSH
GREEN PARIES
FILLED WITH PIXIES
AND SMALL WINGED FAIRIES

THEY WAVE TO ME AND SAY "HI"
AS I FLY BY
SOARING HIGH
UP IN THE SKY

SCATTERING THE LANDS
ARE GEMS OF MANY SHAPES
SPARKLING LIKE GOLDEN SANDS
UPON CRYSTAL LANDSCAPES

AND THE WONDROUS LIGHT I SWIM IN
UNTIL I DROWN
IN THE SKY ABOVE
AND ALL AROUND

I WON'T FORGET, EITHER
THE HARMONIOUS MUSICAL SOUND
WHERE FLOWERS AND TREES ARE ALLOWED TO SING
IN THE VALLEY OF HALLOWED GROUND

SUCH A BEAUTIFUL PLACE IT IS
THAT I OFTEN GO TO
IF YOU'D LIKE, THE NEXT TIME I TAKE THE HIKE
I'LL TAKE YOU ALONG TOO...
