  1. Quiet Clearing

From The Recordings Html

This song was inspired by the works of the inspirational poet, Mark Nepo.  His works have taken me through many dark moments in my life.

Lyrics

Quiet Clearing
 
In a quiet clearing ---just beyond the stream,
Where the moon comes creeping--- through branches of a tree,
Let your head fall softly---while a cloud rolls by,
In a quiet clearing, I’ll be there to meet you tonight.
 
In a quiet clearing--- just beyond your fears,
In that sacred space--- between two falling tears,
Where a towering mountain--- meets an evening sky,
In a quiet clearing, I’ll be there to meet you tonight.
 
I know it’s not easy to say the words good-bye,
To those freezing winds that come to cast your dreams aside,
Now the heat is rising with the beating of your heart,
In a quiet clearing, you and I can greet a brand-new dawn.
 
In a quiet clearing---there’s a place to rest,
On a bed of falling leaves--- and tender blades of grass,
When the stars make their appearance--- in that brilliant sky,
In a quiet clearing, I’ll be there to meet you tonight.
 
In a quiet clearing--- while hope lights up the sky,
Let me take your hand---while you open up your eyes,
In a quiet clearing, I’ll be here beside you tonight.
