The mountain before me is incredibly steep
I have to work hard and dig deep.
My climb is slow, my breathing heavy
Stopping myself a couple of times to keep myself steady.
One step at a time, one foot in front of the other
I’ll get to the top, one way or another.
So I go on, upwards and onwards!
In this square room I suddenly hear
Waves crashing that seems too far away
Light years they are! Light years!
I see the beach, I feel the sand beneath my feet
My mind wanders
While my body remains in this seat.
The mountains call, their cold springs wait
While I am nowhere near them
Alas! This awful fate!
I’d like to leave now
Leave and be free
All the miles I ran
I thought at first I couldn’t
Buy ended up saying, “I can”.
I looked at the behemoth before me
Fear crept inside, swelling
But I ended up trying, you see.
I ran up the mountain, stumbled, fell then got up
Bruises on my elbows and knees
But I didn’t stop.
It felt time was running out or maybe it was rushing in
I took a step forward
And all over again I started to begin.
Love me like the sunshine after a storm
And let me fly free and roam the mountains
Let me run wild with the wind
Don’t let me be a captive
A free spirit, I am
I need to be just me
Hot cup or a mug to warm the hands, heart, and soul
Watching the foggy sunrise
With the ones closest to the heart.
I remember, I wished it was Christmas for the whole year
Who holds your heart?
Is it the basket that holds the pieces?
The sea that has the ashes?
The mountains where you cried?
The rain that hid your tears?
Or is it with the moon that pieced it back again?
Oh it’s summer once again
The excitement awaits
Not everyone goes to the beach
Like me, I choose to climb
Rule the mountain!
Trek the adventure
Choose the path less traveled
Under the heat of the majestic sun
Be kissed by its beauty
Marvel at the world
Reach for it with your fingertips
The day the world ended, the sun wept a cold tear
The moon was never whole again
The stars lost their shine
Darkness enveloped the Earth
The willow mourned and wept
All the colors have been drained
Never to be found again
The trees bent backwards, cowered in fear
The mountains crumbled into dust
The day the world ended, my heart was in pieces
For I have lost you
