Swept Away

As the leaves fall from trees so tall
I feel so small
As I Lay down on the ground below
So far beneath the top of the trees
Nestled by all these silent beings so rooted in the ground
That only a rare act of nature could bring them down
A gentle breeze brushed against my skin
So cool and so calm
Easing my fears and caressing my cares
That for a moment
My mind was free of a thousand thoughts and a thousand fears
That must have been carried away by the breeze, like the leaves from trees
To be buried in the grass or swept away .

Living For Today

Today I’m living
For today
Gonna step outside and
Play away
Forget the worries
That’s what I say
I’ll be chasing all cares away
They’re not welcome here – No way!
That’s all I have to say
Today

I’m breaking free
Of my old ways
Don’t wanna be chained anymore
To mistakes of my yesterday
That I can’t change anyway
So today I’m living for today
Keeping worries all at bay
To resolve themselves another day

My thoughts will no longer
Wonder away
On events and things that I can’t change
When today is here waiting on me
To embrace this day and be wild and free
