The pressures of the day had taken its toll on me.
I lay down to relax, closed my eyes,
leaving the day behind.
Somehow, I walked into another time, another place.
I walked into a garden, a place I had never seen before.
It was as though I had been mysteriously pulled,
through life's secret door.
I gazed at many wonders, things from out of the past.
I tried so hard to grab onto the pictures,
fleeting visions, passing ever so fast.
I caught the glimpse of a valley,
buffalo and horses in play.
Antelope and deer huddled in bands, watching,
from where they lay.
I noticed elephants so big and so proud.
I heard the roar of the lions, bold and loud.
I caught traces of the whale,
frolicking in the massive sea.
I watched monkeys playing in harmony.
swinging from their special tree.
Out of nowhere came a giant dinosaur,
so graceful and tall.
Coyotes let out their howl, porpoises played,
singing with musical call.
I caught sight of a multitude of people,
gathered in peace, and in love.
Black, white, red and yellow,
along with some angles from up above.
All were singing hymns telling of the past,
in a song,
of a place where we once lived,
a place called "Eden"
