There is a lovely place of peace
I hope will never ever cease
I saw it in a dream
A red flower it seemed
To come to me in a vision
A mind set kind of decision
For God to tell me something good
Or give it up I thought I would
Then I found here
All the tears
That come and go
Did quickly flow
To relaxation
Stopping frustration
Growing strong
That I cannot take for very long
Thank you sweet bird
I hear your word
Your songs of poetry
Bring peace to me
There is no retribution there
Just island sight to see and share
A paradise
Calm and nice
With shores brimming
In colors swimming
Fluid delight
I found last night
So songbird sing
Your thoughts will bring
Peace to this old soul
If you just let the island roll
To me in tunes of long-day Junes
Where wind is blowing
There I'll be going
For a little break
Where my back won't ache
If I concentrate
On my ocean place
Where my smiles will face
All the pain again
For the rain again
As it will fall
But it will be better and okay
Because an IslandSongBird sang today.
