Garden of Dreams


image by Evgeni Dinev http://www.freedigitalphotos.net/


A beautiful meadow surrounded by hills
A waterfall gentle and grand
A place in nature where I connect with Spirit
Where the answers I seek are found 

A place for poor children, safe and fun
Making their wishes come true
Down by the seaside surrounded with palm trees
Watching the ocean blue

This is the path that my soul wants to tread on
This is the way to my bliss
I sit in quiet meditation in my garden of dreams
Walking the road that is His
