The Woods

No water was left to bring life to this place
I found myself drifting, lost again in space
So I floated, left my past without a trace…

I walked in the woods, following a path
To a river full of fury and wrath
But I was shocked to see, I couldn’t believe
The river had drained, no fish could ever live

But I continued the journey, wandering
Searching for a paradise while humming
A sad melody with no tune, no hue
Then I was lost in the woods without a clue

So I walked back to the path of the river
Tracking my steps before headed to nowhere
But it seemed I was just going deeper
Into the woods where I was lost forever

Drift Away

let me fly

I am swept… being blown away
In life that I’m living each day
Carry me or give me some wings
Let me fly and see what it brings

But I’m falling… falling into deep
I thought I was ready for the leap
So rescue me, now; save me please
Wrap me with Your warmth; feel Your breeze

Then I’m drifting… drifting in space
Yet this is… it’s my happy place
So let me… let me be with wind
Set me free, let me be careened
