In Woodland Solace

In Woodland Solace,
I find my peace
Problems may exist
But not then
I feel bliss

The forest whispers
relief from pain
A balm for the broken,
sad, and the vain

In nature’s embrace,
my mood is light
My faith renewed,
my heart takes flight

Out here I see 
the handiwork of my Creator
A masterpiece of wonder,
a testament of His glee

The woods remind me
to rest on Hope
To trust in the ONE 
who makes my spirit cope

With every breath,
my soul revives
In the woods,
I find my heart’s alive
