angels

trumpets

green and yellow

distant

radiations

threads of gold and orange

faces in the dark threaten me no longer

---

it is raining

in my head

a gentle thunder

rumples

my brow

as the soft waters

of paradise

break over my face

stairway to heaven

just

as I start

to cry

with bliss

something

tugs

in my heart

and I hear

the voice of

a wise

woman

saying

-

It is not

your

time

yet

You

should

go back

But I

don't

want to

---

I tell

her

I

want

to stay

here

in

paradise

stairway to heaven

That's

all right

she says

You

will come

here again

when you

are old

and

full

of years

But now

you must

return

Your family

needs you

and your

friends

want you

to live

You should

go back

You must

decide now

or else

it will be

too late

---

I

think hard

I really

want

to stay

but I know

I should

return

to my family

and friends

at least

I'll always

know

that

this place

is here

stairway to heaven

then

I'm sliding

back down

that long

escalator

and

I'm floating

above

someone

lying

on the grass

in a park

-

people

are standing

round

a woman

is doing

something

with

the boy

on the

ground

a

kind of

operation

---

then

I realise

the boy is

me

I descend

into the

boy

and

suddenly

I feel

a pain

in my throat

I can hardly

breathe

I hear

gurgling

and

an

ambulance

siren

---

my mother's

face says

Thank God

and

my father

lifts me

up
