Stepping Into Paradise

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I now live in Daytona Beach, Florida with my wonderful cat Sid.

Somewhere I know,
there is more to what my eyes see,
when my quiet days are over
and all my tears will have dried,
I'll see the sunshine again,
a rainbow will fill the sky - -
as I step into paradise.


When there will be more rain than sun.
the seasons blend one into the other.
the clock counting my days by the hour.
my faith will shine through
and my love for you will start burning.
I'll see you hold out your hand -
as I step into paradise.


When all fo my favorite songs,
seem to remind me,
there has to be rock and roll in heaven,
then I'll just dust off my blue suede shoes
and step into paradise


When all the lovely flowers,
I see along the way,
seem to stretch out and show me a path,
the treetops swish and seem to wish,
me goodbye
and the birds on the wing trill sad melodies,
I'll know that soon it will be time -
time to step into paradise


When my days seem to have no meaning,
all the laughter has gone away,
when there seems to be nothing left,
I know I'll hear your voice again -
Darling, I love you
and you'll take me dancing.
dancing right into paradise.
