The Journey



As the music begins to play
Wafting magically in the air
The sound engulfing me
I let my mind go free
I close my eyes and drift with it
The notes swirling around me, lifting me

Light as a feather I begin to float
Each stanza taking me higher
Out of body, Im flying
Soaring above the earth

Above the trees I travel
Turning this way and that
Enjoying the feel of the breeze against my face
The smell of fresh,clean air

The weight of the world is gone
I am one with the wind
Drifting wherever my imagination takes me have no bearing here

I swoop down over the waterfalls of Maui
The mist washing my face
The awesome beauty of God
Takes my breath away

As the sound slightly changes I move up and beyond
to the realm of an exotic jungle
The darkness of this tropical paradise envelope me
Not recognizing that I am a mere observer

The freedom I feel is almost over
As the music comes to a close
Against my will, drawing me back into myself
"Not yet" my mind cries

My soul hungers for more as new lyrics begin
I smile to myself
My journey is not over
Here I go again
