Once I ran away.

Date January 7, 2011

Once I ran away and found one million songs.

Of hurts and joys and memories

of loves who’ve come and gone.

Mountains in the mist

and rivers running free.

Crashing waves and ebbing tides

and trails that climb on endlessly.

Open pastures, fields of green,

shifting sands, and tinkling streams.

All the sights and sounds that play

in the songs I found when I ran away.
