Crossing the streets of my childhood
Came rather easy
Coper red mountain
Perched up north
Helping me navigate
The hostile and unkind grounds

There it stood
Guiding without judgement
And I always found my way

Since then I’ve been lost
Drifting from place to place
Without an anchor to bring me back
Neither the desert, nor the ocean
Or the tree lined hills around this house
Settle the heart

Fleeting moments of joy
Rustling of the leaves as I close my eyes
And try to hear the past
