The Wind


 

The winds are always changing, gentle or strong
Time changes with the wind
Moments grow more precious 
In my every dance with wind and time
Let them judge me
Let their misinterpretations keep them at bay
I know where I am going
I will remember they shunned me and turned their heads away
I will remember and forgive them anyway

The winds are always changing, gentle or strong
Time changes with the wind
Moments grow more precious 
In my every dance with wind and time

I hang no more onto broken arrows

This valley is long and dark
What ails me makes me weary
I am still inside myself
The winds outside me make me strong
Sadness and memories in my song
Only Heavenly Angels listen and sing along

I have become humbled
I choose to walk in a humble way
God’s will be that as it may

One child lost, another turns away
I hang no more onto broken arrows
The winds are always changing, gentle or strong
Time changes with the wind
Moments grow more precious 
In my every dance with wind and time
Instinctively I face the wind
One day I will be one with the earth and sky
The light
The sun
The sky
The rivers flowing
The wind
Will mirror me
I’ll spread my wings and fly
The winds are always changing, gentle or strong
Time changes with the wind
Moments grow more precious 
In my every dance with wind and time
Instinctively I face the wind
Let it carry me away
