Take me down to the places on hidden —

Paths let’s hike; the lush forest has bidden, 

That we heed her wild calls exploring. 

Let us find all nooks, crannies, and more, 

Let’s find the secrets in this forest, 

Masked for centuries, deep secrets unknown. 

Search for me where rocks pile high, where I’m free. 

This landscape has its hardships it’s paths —

Twisted and sometimes steep, but we climb past —

All obstacles, find glorious treasures. 

Unafraid in tranquil woods we measure, 

Distances by landmarks, certain trees, —

Curved trunks bowing; see nature’s masterpiece. 

Hiking as far as we can, giant rocks near, 

Hearing the river’s voice trickling clear. 

Search for me where rocks pile high, where I’m free. 

At night we lie on air mattresses we’re, 

Wrapped in sleeping bags, lost in our dreams. 

The river’s language a tongue we know, 

Then, the sun is high, breakfast made, we go —

To explore our secret, the enchanted world, 

Life is short, peaceful quiet it restores. 

Search for me where rocks pile high, where I’m free.

Simple words said in light, 

Reveal the truth;

In daylight our souls flourish. 

——

But you’re a memory now;

And I’ve no, 

Lights to see, darkness holds. 

—-

I learn my lessons well,

I’ve found experience, 

Teaches only for so long. 

—–

Life has heartbreaks and heartaches, 

I’ve experienced both, 

You’re reaching out, far away. 

—-

You reach blindly for air, 

Wish you’d see,

Me as more than faceless.

—–

Climbing a trail, a pathway, 

Life’s a journey, 

We’re not meant to trek alone.

—–

There’s a meaning in life, 

We’re meant to —

Love largely, with our entirety. 

—–

Our hearts can bear grief, 

Only so much, 

Let’s both share our burdens. 

—-

Love gives meaning to the —

World ; and love —

Hasn’t ruined me; I survive. 

—–

Through pain and hardship, loss —

I’ve managed to —

Go on –light endures all.
