Soft Bed of Earth

Lay my weary head
upon a soft bed of earth
where I can feel
the heartbeat of life against mine
to breathe the melody
carried upon the lips of the wind
and immerse myself
in the harmonious place
where we become one

Let me go home
to where the pristine waters flow
providing strength and sustenance
for my weakened soul
where I can close my eyes,
embraced by life,
in the morning to awaken
and find hope newly revived

Watch me fly free,
with the birds,
through the trees
swimming through the falls,
diving into absolute peace
I will lay my weary head
upon a soft bed of earth
knowing only
the heartbeat of life
against mine
