The entrance to paradise?


“And there shall you be queen; but I,
Shall I find entrance too?
Or must I roam eternity,
To search, sweetheart, for you?”

Warm welcome way-in


”Try imagining a place where it’s always safe and warm

“Oh my only friend, my best beloved,

the gates are open in my house –
do not pass by like a dream.”

Still dreaming, still cold


“You left me standing out in the cold
People ask about you, I didn’t tell them everything I knew
Well, I’m trying to get closer but I’m still a million miles from you.”

(Bob Dylan in Million miles)

“Why — do they shut me out of Heaven?
Did I sing — too loud?
But — I can sing a little minor,
Timid as a bird.”
