Rivers running,
leaves falling.
This I hear and see,
it sets my mind free.
No sounds of cars,
and no room for liars.
Far away in the woods I live,
its secret peace to you is what Ive got to give.
The wind whispers the silence of nature,
mending to a heart that needs to cure.
I know the nature of the rat race in town,
and I know what its like to be looked upon like a clown.
But Ive never walked around with a disguise on my face,
many though Ive seen in the human race.
Like a bird that flies alone in the skies,
so also is the depth of sorrow behind my eyes.
Though peace and joy fill the void inside,
still theres reason for me to run and hide.
Far from people Ive got to be,
it helps me to better see.
For those that cant see the way,
it is for you until my dying day that I will always pray.
I wish you could see that which I live,
then you'd understand what Ive come to give.
