Today


Today i took a deap breath
Filled my lungs with air
Today i looked around
But no one was there
Today i walked alone
Looking for a hand
Today i watched the sun
Smothering the ground
Today i wondered what if
the ground was me
Today i wondered
What its like to be a tree
Today i was thinking
Of the tears that i shed
Today i said
Thats it its now laid to rest

When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
