JOURNEY INTO HEAVEN
Time moves on, as we blow a kiss goodbye on 2011;
I drift off into the clouds, to revisit some of the lost stars,
who now watch over us from heaven.
Thousands of waiting souls litter the stairway to the skies, as I slowly
make my way through that pearly gate;
Nate Dogg is creating a new sound, as he teams up with Jimi
Hendrix, remixing a classic “Regulate”.

to come true;
I see my Nan and Granddad walk towards me, as they whisper “we are
so very proud of you”.
Amy Winehouse now looks happy, she can even break into a smile;
I have to pick my jaw up from the clouds, as Britney Murphy now
looks even hotter, than she did in “8 mile”.
Laughter echoes across the heavens, as Bernie Mac entertains his

him how to play his guitar;

Bob Marley is Jammin’ out an acoustic set, as the white clouds
around me echo

helps them make a brand new home in the sky.
Relationships are blossoming in heaven, Frank Sinatra is now with Elizabeth
Taylor, as Patsy Cline eyes up Marlon Brando;
Elvis Presley just got married to Grace Kelly, whilst Patrick
Swayze dirty dances with Jill Dando.

are entertained by the legendary Freddie Mercury;

the sleeping dreams of the night;
As I fall back through the clouds, the voice faintly whispers “we
all have a destiny, and your Destiny is to Write”.
My eyes open, I am lying in my bed, my pen in my hand, as my alarm
clock reads the time, 11:11;
I have used this pen to re-write my dreams, as I finish writing, my
journey into heaven.
