Let Me Drift Away

Let me drift away

when the days become lazy and slow

the warm sun beckons to me

to walk along the paths

where spring flowers bloom

through the woods where pine trees tall

reach up to the bright blue sky above

and birds trill in the trees

a happy melody


Let me drift away in contentment

smiling all the while

I’ll go forward

dreaming the dreams of yesterday

when life was so easy

and the door of childhood was still open

still the child in my heart remains

and I find the true joy

of each new spring


Let me drift away

as the river flows by

and seagulls and ducks

dance upon the waves

sparkling like tiny diamonds

in the sun

and my heart feels so much lighter

as the burdens of the harsh winter

simply melt away


Let me drift away

find the peace I am seeking

just to be one with the new coming spring

the green grass and the trees

the rocks along the roadway

each one a story to tell

while a soft breeze swishes by

playfully lifting my hair

I’m so glad I could cry


Let me drift away

like a sailboat upon the sea

the wind giving my sails wings

to behold the wondrous things all about

past majestic lighthouses

dancing upon the waves

my face turned towards the wind

knowing there will be a new adventure

just around the bend

my smile never ending

Let me drift away, o Yes, perhaps to the land of visions and much honey. He he. Nice song from Garth Brooks.

When it comes to drifting and dreaming a great many country songs inspire. Glad you enjoyed this Manatita. Hope you're having a wonderful weekend. We had snow today.

Oh, let me drift away with you, Rasma! I love the freedom this poem sings. There's nothing like being on the water with the wind in your hair and the sun on your face. There's a peacefulness that being on the water brings like no other.

That is so true Shauna. Just thinking about it gave me the inspiration for this.

I was upset that your Bob Dylan hub was no longer published. I was really looking forward to it. Bummer.

Shauna I guess it depends on what admin looks upon as duplicate because before I post I always check and then it is hit and miss.

You welcome Paula.
