Our Tranquil Sanctuary

The aroma of pine needles fill the air
Arousing sleeping memories of the past
Emotions teeter from joy to sadness
Awareness of my presence is fading fast

This forest was our tranquil sanctuary
Together in the womb of natures love
We planted the seed of our friendship
Blooming high into the clouds above

Our conversations were long and deep
Where foundations of dreams took form
We sip drops of each others wisdom
Becoming fluid to outlast any storms

Time always goes on unimpeded
Life carries us on different paths
I will cherish all of the time we spent
Locked in my heart where they will last
