Facing west, I lay on the grass bed
Feeling the gentle poke of each blade
On my cheek, as I saw the sun fade
Behind the hills, with the sky changing shade.
The sky now a darker shade of blue
Birds flying back are but a few
I felt my cheek turn moist with dew
And felt the chill as the cool breeze blew.
I turned to see the star-studded sky
Winking at me from up so high,
A million shapes they seemed to imply
I gazed at them as the night flew by.
Every day, as we shine and rise
Nature holds for us a new surprise
All we need is to open our eyes
And renew with her our broken ties.
