i want to go

where the roof is the ceiling

and the wind is the fan

i want to go

where the sun shines down

through the rustling green leaves

i want to go

where the cold envelopes me

in a shivery embrace

i want to go

where the water reflects

the scenery around the edge

i want to go

where the smell of wood and forest life

warms my soul with a potent taste

i want to go

where the worries of the world fall behind

and my mind clears up all the doubt

the nature beckons towards me,

and like a soft and gentle whisper,

it tells me to come in to

where i want to go.
