Where have I been these years just past?
Where has my soul resided?
In nowhere land,
on nowhere shore
In nightmare days collided
The birds no longer seemed to sing,
The living earth suspended.
I’ve journeyed through quicksand and fog, with trusting arms extended.
Can it be true,
do eyes deceive,
Is there light amid the darkness?
Coming closer day by day
Showing signs of progress.
music to my ears as life springs forth from dull brown earth,
exploding into rich full bloom.. does quieten slowly all my fears.
