A hush falls over a sunset
And yet I can't take my eyes
Off of the green branches
The slow moving water

Why wait
The moon will pass over the sun
And I will still stand
And wait for hope to follow

Hope is a little word
That has inspired
So many people
Like a lush green tree

Can you feel life
Moving under your fingers
Standing still
Never moving, nevermore

I will always
Stand and wait
For what
I have no idea

But just stand
And hear
And watch

And wait

This was just written down from scratch out in my backyard. On my iPod. So my hand is sore.

Very nice. I enjoyed the fact that it had deep meaning and the simplicity of it.
