I love trees.
South Africa does not have huge tracts of forest, but what there is, is beautiful.

I talk to the trees
but they don’t listen to me
I talk to the stars
but they never hear me

The breeze hasn’t time
to stop, and hear what I say
I talk to them all
in vain

But suddenly, my words
reach someone elses ear
at someone elses heart
strings too

I tell you my dreams
and while you’re listening to me
I suddenly see them
come true

I can see us some April night
looking out across a rollin’ farm
having supper in the candlelight
walking later, arm in arm

Then I’ll tell you
how I pass the day
thinking mainly how
the night would be

Then I’ll try to find
the words to say
all the things you
mean to me

I tell you my dreams
and while you’re
listening to me
I suddenly see them
come true
