For Granted

The wave of the soft wind blowing whispering in my ear
I stop to listen as the birds singing guide me near 
As I walk on a carpet of green and my feet touch 
A pool of rain I no longer feel pain 
I reach to the heavenly sky’s 
For some sort of sign to guide me on my way
As I stumble and fall lost in front of a big and tall 
Woody plant I look up to see a bright light in front of me
Its yellow rays has turn the clouds away 
As I continue my trip on this wide and open road
I start to see the splendor of living things 
How for granted we take 
The wind the birds the grass the rain the sky the trees the sun 
If going green means to save wild life and preserve nature 
shouldn’t we after all god gave this to us on barrow time 
On earth as I look around me on this out side world 
Where the love grows cold and little know about 
Our oceans Turing red as we turn blind at what’s next
We are set on moving fast and going no where 
As I stop and stare I shed a tear for greener years
