Paradise`s Gateway

Through the setting sun light

there stands a tall archway
lighting up the crawling shadows
that grow at the end of each day

Standing proud before me now
this imposing great structure
beckons me to enter through
as instructed by my culture

Cold dark stone from ages past
remnants that have stood so long
crumbled and weathered by time
yet remain for you and I, so strong 

For this, paradise`s gateway
an entrance to another place
one where pain will be no more
only tranquility and grace

This heavenly lintel bright
calling me to pass on through
hesitant, as I ponder a moment
but all I want is to be with you!
