‘MY SECRET GARDEN’ by Jay: Taylor
Rest beside the old pond awhile
(Night is falling) (Night is falling)
Lift thy eyes to the blushing skies
(I am calling) (I am calling)
Hear my whisper on the breeze…
Hear my laughter in the trees…
With your head in the clouds and your feet in the mud,
I come to you now, as you always knew I would.
Stars and moon in the silence smile
(Night has fallen) (Night has fallen)
I sit down beside you, and stay awhile.
(Always calling) (Always calling)
“Hush, my love, there are no words;
Take my hand, little trembling bird.”
Lay your head softly upon my knee
I reclaim your soul, and I fill your heart with peace.
And the World falls silent all around
But the Garden hums with sweet night sounds.
Dawn breaks softly across the sky
(Day is dawning) (Day is dawning)
I kiss your lips and I say goodbye
(Time is calling) (Time is calling)
Glowing, with the sun I rise,
Loving the fire burning in your eyes.
Morning dew in your hair and my blood in your veins, With my taste in your mouth, oh, you’ll never be the same…
