There’s a place I sometimes go,
where peace I know I’ll find.
Hidden somewhere deep within
shallow waters of my mind.
Far beyond the raging seas
where troubles all abound.
It’s where the ripples softly flow,
this secret place I found.
Where worries cannot find me there,
regrets cannot persist.
There’s memories of Love I’ve known
and joy I can’t resist.
Where gratitude fills up my soul
and lovers take long walks.
I listen to the soothing sound
of water kissing rocks.
I’m watching as the sun goes down
and quietly I pray.
That God in all His Majesty
give me strength for one more day.
