Grand Canyon

The lonely river sparkles through the desert land
As we gaze at the sky, I take hold of your hand
This place feels so eerie, almost like a dream
Shall we drink from the water of this majestic stream?

As we walk on a path through this sacred place
I reflect back and picture your beautiful face
As the eagle floats through the wondrous clouds above
Do you cherish those days when we were so much in love?

The jagged cliffs advance toward an empty sky
You feel so alone, you could suddenly cry
The whisper of the wind through the canyon deep
Your eyes are so heavy, you fall fast asleep

The morning sun glistens off the shimmering walls
As the rushing water flows over weatherworn falls
As I stand here and stare at the beauty of it all
I hear the echo of the coyote, sing his lonesome call
