I drive with the windows down
To feel the air upon my skin
To watch the sunlight kiss the trees
To figure out what sleeps within
 
A puzzle box before my eyes
The music swimming through my ears
I listen to the hows; the whys
I contemplate the passing years
 
Life began anew for me
In a path that then had parted
That fearful leap of one young doe
That foolishly had darted
 
As a wave of fate would crash
And stir her from some sleep
Once mistaken for a life
Some gift we could not keep
 
A secret waited upon a shelf
I opened the wonder in my palm
That I did not know was asking
For something peaceful, something calm
 
And then a shift in thoughts
Opened up an unlocked door
And spoke to me those secret words
That we were always something more
 
Led was I to a sparkling forest
Led was I to a hopeful land
Led was I to a place of dreams
Guided by a gentle hand
 
Now there burns in me a flame
A torch to light the way
To bring a message of peace and love
To let you know what time would say
 
To give you wings so you can soar
And let you fly beyond the sun
To love my heart as it were yours
To know within that we are one
 
A puzzle box before my eyes
The music swimming through my ears
I still don’t have the hows; the whys
That slow release from all my fears
 
So I drive with the windows down
To feel the air upon my skin
To watch the sunlight kiss the trees
To figure out what sleeps within
