Confused in mind, bereft of soul
Through poppy fields I wonder, alone I stroll
 
Where’s the world that I used to know
Where’s the love and friendship life did bestow
 
Alone once again on God’s great land
Life’s passed through my hands like grains of sand
 
Is it too much to ask that I have someone to treasure
Someone to hold, to love and share pleasure
 
The feeling of emptiness, sadness and despair
Looking for solace, please answer my prayer
 
As I gaze on this land of greenery and flower
I understand the gift of nature and might of it’s power
 
The rolling valleys and hills sweep me off my feet
The trees and the rivers greet my eyes oh so sweet
 
So to you mother earth I must thank you for this
Saving my soul and delivering me back from the abyss
