Do you have a mystical place ? I do...

I Went to The Woods in Wonder

As I take to the woods this night
I feel a sense of wonder
They have been my real home...
For as long as I can remember

When I was small
I played alone
And trees wrapped their arms around me in comfort
They sheltered me from a scorching sun
Provided me with cool places to nap
Provided me with enough lush greenery
To renew my sense of peace and tranquility
They were my haven

As I walk along that wooded path this night
I feel a sense of completion
I have no fear of this place
It bares no malice

The soft white carpet all around
Twinkles in anticipation
It's almost as if the fairies themselves
Have sprinkled the path with pixie dust

As freezing mist falls gently upon me
I feel whole again
I breathe deeply of the woods
And know that...
As long as I have woods...
Life will go on
