There's Something - Poem by Kendra Tyler

There something' that I left behind,
What is it I just don't know?
Maybe be the Indian heaven Mountains
Trimmed with a foot or two of snow
Could be the lower fall's creek
The Race track or the pants
There's somethin' that I left behind
A strange feelin' I can't help.
May be that big bull Elk?
That I spotted of the breaks

Could be that big Ol' settin' sun
The one shinnin' off the lake
May be that age old cowboy
And the nite we talked for hours
Can't put my finger on it
Even though I've scoured and scoured
I feel as though I've left behind
Somethin' that's worth a lot
I wish I knew just what it is
Or just what I've forgot
But for now I'll have to ponder
Think back a day or two
Back to those times I enjoyed myself
Beneath a sky of blue
It somehow has got the best of me
Not knowin' what it is

I some how can't remember
In my mind I can't relive
May be the friendly folks I met
Could be the Hunter's wave
May be that never ending road
Could be the rocks and sage
But when I think back to what it is
All I see are pretty hills
The only thoughts that come 'cross my mind
Is the beauty this land fills?
The wind that waves through a field of wild flowers
The mountains just above
The Deer that pepper the landscape
This land I truly love
The rolling mountains
As far as I can see
The colors of this rugged mass
Takes my breath away from me
So it will have to stay a mystery
These unsolved thoughts I find
Until I'm back in Ol' Carson
Maybe then it will come to mind
