As It Could Be

To battle feelings of discontent
to see fallacy where reality is meant,
to wonder if there is indeed a place
to feel again a saving grace…

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Come, sweet Soul, to walk the land
where still the grass is virgin and
no glass, no steel, no one but me
and God is all that your eye can see.

Come, sweet Soul, to my haven home
where Indian and bison once ago roamed
where lark and hawk share the sky,
come and walk, with God and I.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

To shed despair, and deep depression
to reach back to a good life's lesson;
to touch an earth that's not been razed,
to see again through smoggy haze…

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Come, sweet Soul, to walk the land
where still the grass is virgin and
no glass, no steel, no one but me
and God is all that your eye can see.

Come, sweet Soul, to my haven home
where Indian and bison once ago roamed
where lark and hawk share the sky,
come and walk, with God and I.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Before I would leave, I would fall
upon God's land he gave to us all,
to preserve and care for was his desire,
but not subject it to human's hateful empires.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Come, sweet Soul, to walk the land
where still the grass is virgin and
no glass, no steel, no one but me
and God is all that your eye can see.

Come, sweet Soul, to my haven home
where Indian and bison once ago roamed
where lark and hawk share the sky,
come and walk, with God and I.

For though we pray our good intend
a glimpse of salvation would our souls to mend.

A land as you set out above
Is in my heart
A land as you set out above
Is in my soul
We can pray to have such land again
I will join into your prayer

So beautiful your poem
A land like this I like to roam
Sunshine may you shine on every bodies soul


 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.

Sunshine-
Surely your ~spirit walking~
brings peace and content to your soul.
I know it did to mine.
The spirits who watch over our
Mother Earth are smiling.

BEAUTIFUL - JUST BEAUTIFUL

'Come, sweet Soul, to my haven home
where Indian and bison once ago roamed
where lark and hawk share the sky,
come and walk, with God and I.'

~Peace and love~

All of your responses more than fill my heart.  Thanks to each and every one of you who took refuge in this little piece.
