Seasons

Hush

Listen to the wind;

It’ll tell you a secret,

Would you be willing to hear.

Hush

And close your eyes;

Time has come to find you,

Let it pass you by.

Hush

And slow down your heartbeat;

Lend your heart to the mountains

Breathe in their scenery.

Hush

Don’t awaken just yet;

There’s a life to be had,

In the flurry of sleep.

Hush

And remember yesterday;

It had gone before it was,

What color were its wishes?

Hush

Try to whisper your name;

It sounds familiar to you,

Like sugar on the air.

Hush

And think of the water;

The tap and the lake,

You could watch them shatter.

Hush

And imagine tomorrow;

If you wished it be,

What color are its teeth?

Hush

The leaves outside are falling;

Slow and deliberate,

They’d be gone come morning.

Hush

Could you wait for me?

Slow down your pace,

Let me follow your lead.

Hush

There is wear in your eyes;

The rain wasn’t kind,

To the salt that they held.

Hush

And go back to sleep;

The storm is upon us,

You should be counting sheep.

Hush

You can see the flowers blooming;

The night is warm now,

You can shed your coating.

Hush

And await the set of sun;

It reflects your secrets,

It won’t let them come to harm.

Hush

Fall to the rhythm of the night;

Watch out for those sights

That may hide under your bed.

Hush

You don’t have to be afraid;

There is kindness in the dark,

Were you to believe it is there.

Hush

And fall asleep;

Let morning wash by,

Let it wash your intricacies.

Hush

The seasons come again;

Do you recognize their vision,

Or have they become too different?

Hush

There is sense in the days;

But they don’t linger

To tell us their ways.

Hush

And put a pause on the silence;

Do you hear the seconds,

Do you hear your heartbeat?

Hush

And you could let it go

Let it go as a river that flows

Let it go like the weather.

Hush

Did you listen to the wind?

All its secrets are disclosed;

It is, it is free.

Hush

And fall asleep

Let tomorrow step on in;

For now, let yourself dream.
