Losing My Way
Blue skies gave way to hues of gold
As I surveyed the forest deep
Well beyond my intended stroll
Ahead I heard the river's sound
And knowing I had lost my way
Well past the time to turn around
The fears of life my mind restrained
No hurry yet, to leave such peace
For life's direction to regain
From Nature's bounty peace borrowed
Along the path hardships strewn
New hope, new strength, for tomorrow
Above the trees a dim half-moon
I lost desire to get home soon.
