Woodland White

Upon the forest deep
Where the mountain becomes steep
A place where few attempts to go
Nature puts on its show
Trees so thick all around
You can barely hear a sound
Sunlight hidden away
When the wind blows all the trees together sway
Animals lurk upon the silent landscape
The darkness below cannot escape
Until that time the winds do change
A chill in the air does hang
Snow begins to fill its sight
Turning it all a woodland white.

Upon A Cloud

hayden-valley-63564_960_720

Tell me what the sound a cloud makes

Let me know what it takes

To find where it begins and where it ends

What that journey they make intends

As I watch them pass me by

Wishing to myself I could fly

Free as they float across the sky

Seeing all that lies below

Oh how I wish I could go

Over the trees and above the mountains

A soul set free to see all of God’s creation below

Future for Two

holding-hands-2180640_960_720

Dreaming of a future with you

A time when our days are made for us two

Travelling from place to place

Discovering the beauty of God’s great creation

From the Beaches of the coasts

To the Mountains along the divide

And all the areas in-between

Together we will travel from one destination to the next

Visiting our children and their families

Growing older into our twilight we will be

Experiencing all the sights of created by God’s mighty hand

A future meant just for us two

On Top of the Mountain

1394692645307

Standing on top of the mountain so high 

Telling the world look at me, full of my pride

World looks back and strikes me down

Knocking me off this ground so high 

Tumbling down among the rocks I fall

Bashing me bruising my very soul

Crashing amongst the trees

Busting me breaking my heart to pieces 

Falling all the way down to the bottom I go

Landing in the mud and the muck of this world so cold

Wanting to just lay down and stay

The valley of death stares my way

Slowly pulling myself back to my knees

I look to the only one who can rescue me

Lift me up Oh Lord upon the wings of an eagle

Heal my battered and bruised soul

Put the pieces of this heart so broken

Back to where they once did belong

Lord my Savior, Lord my God

Guide me back to the mountain top so high
