If on some uncharted land
I wander as I please
Silence comes the morning sun
Now streaming through the trees
~
Destinations carry me
Along a sorted way
Down the path to anywhere
On any given day
~
Corners I may come around
Are sharp in their design
Slowly I do make my way
To see what I can find
~
Loneliness I’ve come to know
As yet my only friend
Days and nights do travel so
To greet me once again
~
There beyond a clearing
In the brush so thorned and thick
Making haste I follow through
My legs they move so quick
~
For but any sight I see
To dance before my eyes
Thoughts that seem to comfort me
When then I realize
~
Sunning long the water’s shore
If but a fantasy
A beauty drinks of nature’s fair
As if she waits for me
~
Now my shadow blends the scene
She turns to show her face
Like a painted masterpiece
My mind can not erase
~
Glowing like an evening star
So radiant and true
Hair of brown and velvet sheen
I’m lost inside her view
~
Then her smile captures me
It holds on ever tight
So as I can hardly breathe
My head it feels so light
~
Come and sit here by my side
Her words a happy song
Sitting down I can’t believe
Somehow this must be wrong
~
Oh be still my beating heart
For her so long I’ve missed
Like an angel sent to me
If but to know her kiss
~
As the sun is setting
And the moon begins to rise
Watching the reflection glow
Within her tempting eyes
~
Now my days are endless
As I now know what that means
For I will spend forever
With the woman of my dreams
~
And we shall go a wandering
Where ever we may find
Sitting in the shade produced
Beneath a jasmine vine
~
All along I thought this place
Was heaven don’t you see
Now I know it is the truth
*Since she is here with me
