The wild so real it’s beautiful . It runs so deep that all the thorns have fallen away and turned into dust . As it opens up , stretching ever wider , it’s magnificence will envelop your heart . There may be a song to ignite the stirrings or a lullaby to soothe the spirit’s lonely wanderings .
There is joy in the beautiful , wild road . It seeks for you all the while that you sleep . And it holds your heart so dear that the comfort that you feel becomes real . Feel the lightness in the touch of the stars when they dance in your eyes . It’s an invitation to twirl with all of your heart.
The sounds of gentle humming , sweet and clear , fill the empty spaces .
How were we to know that you were leaving us so soon ?
YOUR love and honor was alive in each breath but I didn’t know your name .
Dedication to a future in your vision crushed in the blink of someone else’s eye .
The ache that has been left in your place so raw , so completely exposed .
Your name won’t be forgotten but I’d rather not know it .
You were here to live and to love . Cry over losses and laugh with your heart .
Your sweet hums in the hallways will echo in the vacant spaces forever .
