The Healing Power of Nature

The Healing Power of Nature

Feeling lost I looked around and couldn't see the Light
I know it's there, I know it is, I know with all my might

When feeling down just go outside and look around and see
The Healing Power of Nature's just waiting for you and me

I went outside and took a breath, breathed in the crisp new air
Then closed my eyes to listen, as I heard soft whispers there

A song was sung for me to hear, the sweet melody of a bird
The timpani of rustling leaves, accompanied what I heard

The buzzing of a bee flew by as a woodpecker kept time
Such music in my head I heard, the song of natures rhyme

I felt my mood was changing fast, as healing did begin
It wasn't long before I felt, the beginning of a grin

My eyes I opened now to see, the glorious sky above
The sun the clouds and birds fly by, all I feel is Love

Breath in deep, the scent of her, Mother Nature all around
As sweetness, soft and gentle, her flower 's grace the ground

I look ahead and see a tree, such beauty and such strength
It's tall and broad and seen so much, of life at such great length

Sensing something else is here that's looking at me now
I turn and see a deer and fawns, under tree's protective bough

Though once I felt alone and down, I now have many friends
The air the earth the animals, my heart it now transcends

The Healing Power of Nature, has brought Light back to me
Don't believe the words I say, just go outside and see

Hear the sounds and see the beauty, feel the warmth of Light
The Healing Power of Nature, it's Love that makes life right
