This Paradise of Mine

A tiny ray of sunlight,
Sparkles on my finger.
Like a pretty diamond,
On my hand it lingers.

It's a beautiful feeling lying there,
Beneath a calm blue sky.
The wind sweeps through my hair,
As it swishes by.

A cute-lil bird,
Perched up on a branch.
Chirps away sweetly,
Speaking to my heart.

The merry brook nearby,
Is of true delight.
It dances to a Waltz,
Filling my soul with joy!

A Petal - dainty and pretty,
Comes fluttering down from the sky.
I watch it dancing lightly,
And feel it come, rest on my eye.

I turn my face to the other side,
An explosion of colour greets me.
Row and Rows of Blossoms,
Sway in tune side-by-side.

Sigh! Sigh and Sigh,
Is all that I can do.
I do not want to leave this Paradise,
But leave it - I have to do.

Not for long though,
Thankfully,
Not for long you know.

'Cause all I have to do,
Is slowly close my eyes.
And there it is in front of me,
My sweet Paradise.

Peace and Tranquility,
Bits of Hope and Happiness.
A place spiced with Love and Joy,
A place made just for Me!
