Sweet Mountain Air


As we hiked up into the sweet mountain air
the sunlight brought life to the deep dark forest
and glistened as the breeze blew through your hair

While we decided to take a seat in nature's loft
my nose tickled with curiosity
your rose perfume was so strong and yet soft

When we reached the peak of the mountain
my senses got quite a surprise
when you pulled me into nature's water fountain

I was in Utopia laying with you under the trees
staring into the big blue sky
amongst the mountain lion, the deer, the birds and the bees

As we hiked down out of the sweet mountain air
the sunset brought colors to the deep dark forest
and sparkled as the wind twirled your hair

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
