lost in the wilderness

for so many years

the torture of loneliness

no one to dry his tears .


his sanity depending

upon his beautiful memories

as he climbs through the mountains

the valley's and tree's.


escaping lifes pressures

the pain in his mind

he had fled to nowhere

himself for to find .


at one with nature

fed from the land

he remembers his true love

and the life they had planned .


by campfire smiling

in this place so serene

he pictures her beauty

tonight he will dream .


butterflies ascending

in his heart he knows

forever love follows him

wherever he goes .


all of his belongings

packed in his canoe

he paddles the river

as his heart says he must do .


he's heading home now

to the girl he adores

praying she'll forgive him

when he steps through the door .


he'll kiss her gently

no more will he roam

as he holds her in his arms

she whispers '' welcome home ''
