Love has left its trace



Will you walk in the forest with me now?
As spring blossoms greet us with such delight
You would rejoice at such a pretty sight
Hearing both the nightingale and the crow
Observing darters in the rushing stream
Or look into the treetops far up high
To glimpse within the leaves the sunlight's beam
Loving it you'd sit down and give a sigh
This was your heaven such a special place
Your eyes would close in such contented rest
This is how I remember you the best 
All these years later I can you embrace
To feel you close still to my eager chest
For in this forest love has left its trace

    The forest is guiding you Robin as you reminisce.

  14. I love that you still have those places where you can draw close to them. I have those special places as well. And when I need, I can travel there, and tarry with their memories. Lovely nature hints in this.
