Such reverence

Such reverence

I have such reverence for life
I love the mystery
Of walking by a lake that glitters
Or when full moon’s floats on sea
I love to hear the song birds sing
Just around the break of dawn
And I love to feel that solitude
On those dark, dark early morns.

I love to feel that silence come
When the day has just begun
I love to see those wondrous hues
Then sight the morning sun
Then there’s that silence even deeper
As the day begins to fade
Oh when I am within this space
I’m like a new born babe.

I love to hear the thunder roar
And see the blessed sky
Fill with wild and jagged light
It makes me want to cry
And laugh, and sing, and dance a jig
As the rain from dark sky falls
Tis then I really understand
I understand it all.
