The Secret Place

O, blessed soul that finds its rest within your hallowed handscupped hands reaching to the sky

Free from despair and worries that the mind often demands

Yet in this place to which the harried soul is finally driven

In exchange of sadness deep within, a perfect peace is given

This place can be frantically searched out, and yet remains afar

Remote for months or even years, as distant as a star

And yet when eyes will finally close and finally choose to see

This blessed place is discovered anew, as true reality

A mysterious place so deep within every heart and soul

This place that one will search and find those things that truly make him whole

It is considered by many to be not more than a dream

A place of wishful thinking under the stars’ bright gleam

But for those who have found this place of peace within

Know that there’s no greater joy than returning there again

A sacred spot deep within the heart

Where the soul can find a brand new start
