That moment’s tranquillity for which I crave
To soothe my soul & calm my mind
Evades my grasp elusively.
There… on a memory of an ocean’s swell
Or on a breath of air from a highland fell
Or a raindrop caught on a trembling leaf
How many miles has that moment travelled?
Where did it come from, that precious mote,
That calmed my mind & soothed my soul?
Surround my soul with layers of peace,
Let me drift with the tides of my dreams
Calm and serene,
Let my feelings guide me,
Soothe my thoughts & bring me peace.
