OVER DISTANT HILLS
She remembers a time she watched with awe
A light so golden flew over these hills.
The rays touched her with a beautiful, warming comfort,
Enlightening her...And for once, forced her to honestly smile.
She stayed and watched her course through the sky,
Higher and higher she flew, and brightened all she touched.
Lying in the green, she basked in her loving celestial kisses.
'Twas so sweet, she almost fell into a slumber.
But it wasn't long before she saw her go to the west.
The warmth and colors around her slowly faded.
In pounced the ravenous sorrow, dark and the cold.
And that is why she spites her as she flows over distant hills.
