Will you really be mine?
As I search for answers
That are buried deep in my heart.
We belong together –
You calm my troubled mind
And sooth my weary soul.
Your majestic mountains and rushing rivers
But you also captivate me.
How sensational each moment seems
When I am enveloped in your earthly charms.
Why do you cast this spell on me?
Perhaps I will never know.
Instead, I will revel in your healing touch
And reciprocate with gratitude and love.
