When I am walking with Trees

When I_m walking with Trees

Painting by Pierre AJ Sabourin En Plein Air Landscape Artists

Thank you Pierre for use of your painting. It inspired this poem

 

When I’m walking with Trees

A forgotten path beckons

Through an ancient forest

Covered in lichen and moss

When I’m walking with trees

My body is relaxing

My energy is flowing

My soul becomes of the forest

As I listen, to the forest sounds

The air is calm

The morning sunlight filtering

On the forest floor dancing

When I’m walking with trees

When I’m walking with trees
My body is relaxing

My energy is flowing

The path twists and turns

Over time worn rock

I have this feeling

Being watched from above

A light appears ahead

As closer I walk

The light it intensifies

Then before my eyes, fading

I hear a song

As I walk along

It is the trees whispering

A hush voice singing

A gentle caress upon my cheek

It is the morning breeze

Cool and fresh, a lover’s touch

When I’m walking with trees

When I’m walking with trees

My body is relaxing

My energy is flowing

The trees appear to nod

As I pass by

The air is clear

The sounds I hear

The brush of a branch

Gently upon my shoulder

It has been awhile

For now I smile

Join Me And The Lord

Join Me And The Lord

The day has been long

But I made a song

Just walk a little closer

Join me and the Lord

The shadows upon the walls

The church bells are ringing

You can hear him calling

Join me and the Lord

Just walk a little closer

Join me and the Lord

Hallelujah,Hallelujah

Just walk a little closer

To me, my darling

I’ll sing you my song

As we walk along

Just walk a little closer

Join me and the Lord

Hallelujah,Hallelujah

The church bells are ringing

You can hear him calling

Just walk a little closer

Join me and the Lord

Gory Hallelujah,Hallelujah

Hallelujah,Hallelujah

The day has been long

But I made a song

Just walk a little closer

Join me and the Lord

Gory Hallelujah,Hallelujah

Hallelujah,Hallelujah

When I First Saw You

Roses10_1404

When I First Saw You

When I first saw you

That smile

Just broke my heart

It was off the chart

You called my name

You gave me your heart

I gave you my soul

You are my sweetheart

Yes my darling

You are my love

We are forever and more

Sealed with a kiss

A kiss of love

Yes darling

You are my love

My forever love

You prayed for me

To be delivered to you

You waited four years long

Then I came along

You can rest your fears

Wash away your tears

You are in my arms

You will come to no harm

Yes darling

You are my love

My forever love

You need not pretend

Not pretend, anymore

I am holding you

Our hearts will blend

You will never walk alone

So baby, don’t cry

Just look up at the sky

Then say thank you

When I first saw you

That smile

Just broke my heart

It was off the chart

You will never walk alone

So baby, don’t cry

Just look up at the sky

Then say thank you

Hey, Come on Honey

Rose_0496

It’s Saturday night

The clock strikes eight

I got a pocket full of money

I’ll call my honey

Going down to the bar

It’s not too far

I got a pocket full of money

I am walking my honey

I’ll take her hand

Oh, I feel so grand

I can hear the music

I hear them blues

The band strikes up

It is the blues, so slow

Hey, come on babe

We dance, oh so close

We’ll sway our hips

We will touch our lips

We move our feet

I feel the heat

Oh, that feels so good

Just gives me the mood

That slow,slow blues

As the band plays on

Ah yeah, love you babe

You and the blues

That is the way

It should be

The clock strikes four

It is late, the hour

I will walk you home

Oh what a blues night

Hey. come on honey

It’s Saturday night

The clock strikes eight

I got a pocket full of money

I’ll call my honey

Going down to the bar

It’s not too far

I got a pocket full of money

I am walking my honey

Tomorrow Never Came

_MG_6022

Tomorrow Never Came

The time has past

My hair is silver now

Tomorrow never came

Our love has gone

My thoughts always turned to you

We never got to say I do

You were the shadow of my life

No matter where I went

But your memory will always

Will always,be cherished

But it is sad

What we really had

If only we knew

Just you and me

I still can’t believe it

After all these years

My hair is silver now

Tomorrow never came

So hello, wherever you are

My love was forever

You were always my lover

Through good and bad times

My thoughts always turned to you

We never got to say I do

You were the shadow of my life

No matter where I went

The time has past

My hair is silver now

Tomorrow never came

Our love was lost

My hair is silver now

Tomorrow never came

Our love has gone

I’m Coming Home

_MG_6022

I’m Coming Home

Hey baby, It’s just me

Yeah baby, I’m coming home

I’m coming home

Got my suitcase packed

The time has been long

I will just be along

On the next flight out

Leaving Toronto

I got the next flight out

I’m leaving the blues behind

I am going to bring

All my loving

I’m soaring above the clouds

Leaving them blues behind

Just you on my mind

Just you on my mind

I am flying to Managua

Looking for your love

To take your hand

To take your hand

Just to say, I love you

Just to say, I love you

Just to look above

Thankful for your love

Then walk you home

Like I wrote, in the poem

Oh yeah, just you and me

Falling in love again

Falling in love again…

Falling in love again….

Hey baby, It’s just me

Yeah baby, I’m coming home

I’m coming home

Got my suitcase packed
