 Reflections of My Heart

I Know Not Why ღ KKD ღ

I Know Not Why

I sit here at water's edge
for the answers I do listen
I know not why the stars
in the sky brightly glisten

I know not why
some hearts are allowed to fly
I know not why
some never soar the sky

I know not why
some doors remain closed
I know not why
for some love is always opposed

I know not why
upon the shelf must be home
I know not why
some are destined to be alone

I know not why
what is given is not received
I know not why
heart ache must be conceived

I know not why
some must lie
I know not why
Love has to die

I know what I yearn
Will I ever again feel
For what is received
is it ever real

I know not why
not all have an easy road to trod
But I do know
All things rest in the hands of God

Dream of the Dolphin

In every colour there's the light.
In every stone sleeps a crystal.
Remember the Shaman, when he used to say:
'Man is the dream of the dolphin'
