The Path of My Heart

The golden leaves cover the country side
I follow them in the rain
Behind the old maples and birch
I still see you walking on the leafy path
Your eyes as clear as the deep blue sky
And my heart is brightly lit
because your love keeps me alive.
I see you smile in the quiet of the field.
I smell the aroma of fall as it encases
All the secrets and treasures of my heart
The words spring forth as from a brook
No one can contain
And love stays
Like Christ on the cross
Bleeding and forgiving
Keeping doors open so
Frost melts as it steps through.

I love you
In this favorite of all woods
Our love is pure and treasured
And true as the golden leaves
Of the country side.
A LAdy's Life.

I'm with Mama Zen. Beautiful and loving and gentle. The gentleness felt very good this Sunday evening when I don't feel good at all.

Oh Sandy I am so sorry. I hope you feel much better soon.

Zuzana I love gypsy music and Tangos
I remember my Dad playing similar music on his guitar. It just perfect for a bonfire.
