I’ll meet you there…

human-1215160_960_720

I’ll meet you there under a splendid moonlit sky
Where lightning bugs play
And the clouds drift lazily by

I’ll meet you there under the watchful eye
Of the old spotted owl
Who calls from a glen nearby

I’ll meet you there under the ancient willow tree
Her soft tendrils reach out to embrace us
And then lazily recede to set us free

I’ll meet you there under the shimmering stars
Their comforting winks warm us
And smile down on us from afar

I’ll meet you there under the shadow of the hill
Her rugged terrain is blanketed for the eve
And her shadowy presence stands gloriously still

I’ll meet you there under the watchful gaze of the hidden gazelle
Their quiet presence is felt, but never seen
It’s a magical place here in which they dwell

I’ll meet you there under the cool breeze of the night
As the good Lord looks down upon us
And guides us with his glorious light

I’ll meet you there…

  18. Yes, it was! Plus, the addition of lightening bugs makes my day. I love watching them turn on and off on warm, summer nights.

  19. I have to tell you a funny thing about lightning bugs V… I grew up in California and so I never knew they existed until I later moved to Virginia… I always believed that they were only to be found in fairytales… I’m so glad I was wrong… at the age of 18 I discovered fireflies for the first time and I was in complete awww… 🙂
