Story

A few weeks ago, GYAWS assigned the theme, Garden. At the time I was too busy to write.  I was, however, able to spend some time in a rather beautiful garden, curated by my mother during a visit.  Her little paradise inspired this song.  

Lyrics

Secret garden, an oasis
A place of hope, a second home
Where the worries of the world fade away
Secret garden, an oasis
With a rainbow slowly growing
Ever changing with the seasons, come what may

The birds and wildlife come and go
Warm breezes dance and play
Minutes turn to hours
Sky shifts from light to gray
That crescent moon and its milky glow
Transforms this magic place
With a book in hand and that night wind song
I slowly turn the page

Secret garden, an oasis
Contentment is thy name
The toils and labors to maintain
Are a joy to undertake
Secret garden, an oasis
Dirty hands and sun kissed skin
With the morning light and a steaming cup
I can't wait to begin

<Instrumental>

The birds and wildlife come and go
Warm breezes dance and play
Minutes turn to hours
Sky shifts from light to gray
That crescent moon and its milky glow
Transforms this magic place
With a book in hand and that night wind song
I slowly turn the page

To that secret garden, an oasis
A place of hope, a second home
Where the worries of the world fade away
