Nature Forever More
 
As the waves gently break upon the shore
I could stay and watch forever more
As nature oh so gently speaks
With each foam-capped breaking peak
As the wind rushes through the trees
Bringing nature’s cool, brisk breeze
And as the snow falls gently to natures’ floor
I could stay and watch forever more
As the sun shines through the clouds and trees
And as you watch the snow falling, you can see the breeeze
Nature has beautifully opened her door
I could stay and watch forever more
You stand perfectly still, as if in a trance
And try to take in what nature offers, by chance
And hope she will not close the door
I could stay and watch forever more
You want to remember all that you hear and see
For a chance like this, for you, does not often come to be
Nature has so much to offer, she could never be poor
I could stay and watch forever more
You hear the birds so sweetly sing
And “hear” the snow falling, such a beautiful thing
And wish that time would not knock your door
I could stay and watch forever more
And much too soon, it’s time to leave
Such hurt and sadness you do perceive
Now on nature, you must close the door
But I could stay and watch forever more
