I have a dog who always has curious look upon his face, I named him Quest.
His presence in my life reminds me that I am a seeker.
He has walked with me beside the crystal clear brook to find the answers.
I sit under the cypress tree, watching, with my dog Quest.
We have gone into meditation under that tree seeking the answers to our life.
I look to Quest and I see the searching in his eyes, as we delve deeper;
The meaning of our lives are within our grasp, as we sit under that tree.
I wait under the cypress tree with my dog Quest.
We will not rest without finding the truth, the reality of our life.
Quest is as dedicated to this journey as I am, we sit patiently by the brook;
As our minds combine together, Quest and I soar into the celestial realms.
I fly above the cypress tree with my dog Quest.
We explored the skies, seeking God, and whatever else exists above us.
We sought the answers to mans greatest question, Why are we here?
As Quest and I walk the paths, our combined minds seek the truth.
My journey takes me under the cypress tree with my dog Quest.
I put my arm around my dogs shoulder, as our bonds have gotten stronger.
We have learned not only of this world, but we learned about each other.
Our relationship has become as important as the journey that together we take.
I found true friendship under the cypress tree with my dog Quest.
I see God when looking into my dogs heart, as well as my own soul within.
I see truth in the wag of his tail, his bark, and his steadfast resolve.
This mighty dog and I have sought, and continue to seek new levels of truth.
I found peace under the cypress tree with my dog Quest.
