The Secret

I drove with the windows down 
To feel the air upon my skin 
To watch the sunlight kiss the trees 
To figure out what sleeps within

 

A puzzle box before my eyes 
The music swimming through my ears 
To listen to the hows; the whys 
To contemplate the passing years

 

Life began anew for me 
In a path that then had parted 
That fearful leap of one young doe 
That foolishly had darted

 

As a wave of fate would crash 
And stir her from some sleep 
Once mistaken for a life 
Some gift we could not keep

 

A secret waited upon a shelf 
I opened the wonder in my palm 
That I did not know was asking 
For something peaceful, something calm

 

And then a shift in thoughts 
Opened up an unlocked door 
And spoke to me those secret words 
That we were always something more

 

Led was I to a sparkling forest 
Led was I to a hopeful land 
Led was I to a place of dreams 
Guided by a musician’s hand

 

Now burns in me a magic flame 
A torch to light the way 
To bring a message of peace and love 
To let you know what time would say

 

To give you wings so you can soar 
And let you fly beyond the sun 
To love my heart as it were yours 
To know within that we are one

 

A puzzle box before my eyes 
The music swimming through my ears 
I still don’t have the hows; the whys 
That slow release from all my fears

 

So I drove with the windows down 
To feel the air upon my skin 
To watch the sunlight kiss the trees 
To figure out what sleeps within
