Anna Songs - Listen with your Soul

The Work of Paul Dominic Gray

SOMETIMES I TAKE A SLOWLY WALK

Sometimes I take a ‘slowly’ walk

And wander as I might

And be content to let the scenes

Drift in and out of sight.

 

I walk along the muddy path

Then past the village green

Where the trees skirt strong and tall

Through branches the moon be seen.

 

I then start to wonder

Can it really be the same?

The same moon that not long I saw

From a country far away.

 

Then memories come running back

And different views I see

And there in darkness all alone

Stands the longing part of me.

 

Tonight I took a ‘slowly’ walk

The moon was only half

Yet it brought back all heartaches

That will not let me starve.

 

And so I ponder on my ‘slowly’ walk

Perhaps she may be

Looking at that same new moon

Like me.
