Here Lays My Love

Some jewels of rain, and silver webs,
Here lays my Love, His head to rest.

Like summertime, and dreams afar,
His beauty is beyond the stars.

He never sleeps; He never dies;
He is my ease when my heart cries.

Some jewels of rain, and silver webs,
Here lays my Love, His head to rest.

So out to Him I often go,
My troubles flee, a shaking foe.

I find Him in the thick of trees,
Cracks of branches, under leaves.

Some jewels of rain, and silver webs,
Here lays my Love, His head to rest.

Who is my Love, what is His name;
The man that sleeps among the rain?

Trills of the birds, frost on petals,
The rising sun, like a shining medal.

Some jewels of rain, and silver webs,
That is my Love, His head to rest.

Nature’s silence, untold beauty,
Hidden moments, earth’s golden key.

That place where time just seems to freeze,
God’s creation, overwhelming me.

Some jewels of rain, and silver webs,
Here lays my Love, His head to rest.

Some jewels of rain, and silver webs,
Here lays my Love, He’s nature’s nest.

Nature is my love to rest;
Some jewels of rain, and silver webs.

Through this piece, I hope people can look at nature in a different light. I hope that, the next time they see rain or a spider web, they will appreciate all its wonderful beauty. I also hope that people can better understand me and why I find the outdoor world as my perfect refuge.
