Endless Dreams


If I stood atop the highest mountain

And shouted my name to the wild winds

Or to the soaring eagle high overhead

Would anyone care to hear my little voice?

If I stood atop the highest mountain

And opened my soul to the land below

My thoughts, my sorrows, my deep loneliness

Would anyone take one moment to listen?

If I stood atop the highest mountain

And enlightened the wandering river

That I was once all that I claimed to be

Would the healing blue waters comfort me?

If I stood atop the highest mountain

And bowed deeply down to the ancient ground

To show my respect for Great Mother Earth

Would She know that I am her humble child?

If I stood atop the highest mountain

And wished on the brightest heavenly star

That some day love would surely come my way

Would I awaken from these endless dreams?

If I stood atop the highest mountain

And did not stop my tears from cascading

Like the rains upon the silent forests

Would you finally try to understand?
