BEAUTIFUL SCENERY TOUCHED BY LOVE By Lee Durmaj of Australia
I stood on a hill overlooking the horizon
As far as the eye could see,
Surrendering my body to feel nature evolving,
Seeing beauty abound in every corner
Breathtaking this magnificent scenery!
Trees rising from the ground
Standing tall with branches spreading out wide,
Leaves of different colours of green
Shapes and sizes unique to every botanical name,
Wild flowers in the meadows colours of a sunset
In shades of golden yellow, sunburnt orange and red like fire.
Mountains in the distance rugged with cascading waterfalls
Serene in their wondrous setting,
Majestically they reach for the snow white clouds
The ocean stretched out far beyond, blue like a topaz
What the eye cannot see the outline foretells it exists.
Take my hand let us walk amongst nature’s exhibits,
My painting of this scenery I will share with you my love,
We will stop for a while and enjoy the picturesque setting,
As you stand behind me, folding your arms around me
Holding me so gently and lovingly, this is all that I need.
I know the love that is in your heart and soul,
We will lay our bodies on soft green grasses
Shaded by a canopy of trees, their leaves rustling in the breeze,
With wild flowers surrounding our bed of evergreen
Looking up, we see blue skies floating between the trees
We are in paradise, you, nature and me captured in this memory.
Remember this day for all eternity
I painted this picture just for you,
And when my soul has gone to the paradise in heaven
In your dream I will come and touch your memory once again.
I will place a soft kiss on your lips
And touch your face ever so gently,
My Angel wings will caress you,
You my love will feel me touch your spirit
My place will be with you in heaven,
You know this as I do.
