On the wrong side of the door to paradise

Do you remember the way to eden? 
I haven't been there lately-
inside the whole time
and I'm a thousand miles away
I need a perch to land on, a branch to alight
I'm being tossed about in this whirlwind called life
caught in yet another of life's tempestuous moods
yet theres memory of peace inside
I can see it through the keyhole
in vain I search for the key 
(I used to know)
but I've misplaced it
I should take better care of such things 
before they become lost,
put them back always in the same place again
so I know where to find them
when I need some peace of mind
in times that I am trapped on the other side- 
a bird that flutters its wings uselessly outside the door
able to see inside,and still wondering 
what is holding me back, 
keeping me on the wrong side of the Door to paradise
