Let’s sneak out after midnight.
Meet me down the road.
We’ll go running through the field.
Nobody will know.
Bring your father’s bourbon
And a radio too.
We’ll listen to some music,
Maybe dance a song or two.
I’ll bring us a blanket
And wear my yellow dress.
The one I wore last summer,
The one you like best.
We’ll lay down with each other,
Not breathe a single word.
Because we know what our hearts are saying,
Nothing that can be heard.
We’ll count the stars to a million.
We’ll laugh until we cry.
We’ll hold each others hands,
Watch the lightening bugs make fire in the
And I can’t wait to see you.
Can’t wait to breathe you in.
Can’t wait to see your laughing eyes
And do it all again.

The Ravens are busy telling stories
Outside my window.
They have the most recognizable voices.
The sweet, sweet smell of clover
And the melody of the bees working so
Diligently as I walk through the fields.
(I remember how afraid i once was of the bees)
This song of the wind
Brings harmony to my carefully
Placed bare footsteps kissing the
I do not wish to crush anyone
I ran to the field and
Lay amongst the flowers today.
I stayed in their company for hours.
Days go by.
I let the sun burn my heart.
I do not know why but it is true.
My essence did soar.
I dreamt a dream of you and I and it began to rain.
The raindrops did not touch our skin
Submerged in internal flames,
Dreaming the same dream beside me.
What is this fire you have brought to me?
You hummed and strummed,
Said nothing but we knew.
We never touched but we knew.
Me wishing to remain in sweet slumber and forever have you there.
My heartstrings are being pulled
To a place far away
Where my love does lie
In the field
There are flowers
And a rusty old
My heart does
My heart does
My love does wait.
