-inspirational lyrical verse…

~

Sleepy hollow’s dreamy waters

mystic whispers, fog in drifting

mountains dusted emulate as

rumors cast and long awaiting

tell me why as reasons drone in

endless wonder, shores bemoaning

spirits cast and wanton linger

silent stands of trees; intoning

~

(refrain…)

beauty rests in dreams awaiting

peaks and valleys, stories told

of the days and nights foregone

hazy morning’s breath unfolds

in the sweetest song notes flowing

as the water’s cleanse abating

pain and sorrow cry

no-one asked me why

only the trees on high…

~

Stilted cabin’s harbor secrets

enchanted charm and moored to shore

in a silent watch forever

holding aimless secrets knowing

in its refuge peace and savior

my undying love pretending

may it always be my treasure

lost and found, I live forever

~

(repeat refrain…)

beauty rests in dreams awaiting

peaks and valleys, stories told

of the days and nights foregone

hazy morning’s breath unfolds

in the sweetest song notes flowing

as the water’s cleanse abating

pain and sorrow cry

no-one asked me why

only the trees on high…

~

Tears may fall but they are healing

Heaven’s open arms forgiving

many questions left unanswered

still, my love for you is treasured

something lost and never found is

all it was ever meant to be

open paths and unrelenting trails

looking forward are the truths I see

~

(repeat refrain…)

beauty rests in dreams awaiting

peaks and valleys, stories told

of the days and nights foregone

hazy morning’s breath unfolds

in the sweetest song notes flowing

as the water’s cleanse abating

pain and sorrow cry

no-one asked me why

only the trees on high…

~

Birds in trees on high are calling

from their nesting place above me

crystal waters purified, a

sweet caress of His anointing

clouds beneath a listless Heaven

drifting by as wind’s prevailing

in the color uncertain, is my

relentless purpose in knowing

~

In this place my peace abounding

as the splendor deep, embracing

giving thanks and endless prayers, I

live forever in the promise

~

(closing refrain…)

*

beauty rests in dreams awaiting

peaks and valleys, stories told

of the days and nights foregone

hazy morning’s breath unfolds

in the sweetest song notes flowing

as the water’s cleanse abating

pain and sorrow cry

no-one asked me why

only the trees on high…
