Where I Lay My Head


Solemn mood

Lay my head down

Resting my eyes

I remember when the sky

Was made of gold

And your silhouette

Stood out bold

For the first time today

I think my mind is at peace

4 Line Stories: Comforting Strings 

I could listen to her and play for hours 

Something soothing in the sounds she created 

She pulled at my heart’s strings with every note from her guitar’s strings 

I could listen to her play, for life

4 Line Stories: The Prayer Tree

With stirring hearts they said a prayer

That the light of love would always be there

So as they gathered around on this special day

Be sure much peace and love was sent your way

Almost Upon Us

Up ahead 

Shades of Bethlehem 

When the earth is silent 

Peace is prevalent 

Traditions and non traditions 

Take precedence 

And you live your day in your way

No matter the sky you live under
