Walkway to Paradise

I close my eyes and hold my breathe
As I fall into a deep sleep.
I am hypnotized, I'm in a trance.
I am walking, walking through 
A garden of exotic flowers, wondrous trees,
Delicious fruit growing trees.
I take a deep breath and I can smell the 
Luscious fragrance as the wind 
Breezes through my hair.
The ground-- it is as soft as rose petals.
As I walk on through this path, 
Those petals turn into a
Pasture of beautiful bright green grass.
It is swaying back and forth,
It's dancing as the wind sings 
Soft melodies  whistling 
Through the bright blue sky.
There are birds, butterflies and 
Gorgeous creatures running through
This pasture-- running freely 
And happily.
As I walk through I can see
Beautiful bright green and blue glossy colors.
I get closer and I look down, 
The ocean is crystal clear, it's amazing!
Wondrous creatures are floating around
In this crystalic water, 
They swim around and around, 
each one unique and different. 
Bright, bold, beautiful colors
They glide through this amazing liquid. 
I catch myself, I see my face
Through this water, my shadow--
It does as I do! It is wonerful!
I walk on through the warm beach 
And all is calm. 
I can gently hear the waves slap themselves
upon the rocks- 
As if swayed back and forth by 
The hands of GOD.
The sunset is one like no other. 
The sky is filled with wonderful soft colors of
Red, pink, orange, yellow, purple, and blue. 
It's as if I am standing in a painting. 
I am standing still in a moment of
My precious life.
The beach comes to an end,
As I get closer and closer 
I can see a street in my path.
I am walking on streets of gold!!
Each side of me is filled with 
Marshmellowy clouds of white and silver.
I walk down this road of gold, this warm 
But soothing road, 
I am met at the gates of 
HEAVEN
And greeted with warmth and the 
Comforting arms of 
GOD Almighty. 
These gates, pearly white gates,
Are too beautiful !!! 
GOD than reaches out his hand for mine.
He is a man of awe strucken beauty! 
I reach forth and in a moments time, 
I realize I am face to face with 
My GOD--
And just beyond those gates is 
My destiny.
I than walk on with my Father 
Into His wondrous 
Walkway to Paradise.
