Bright Is the Source

Bright is the source
As it runs from the ground
Of earth and grass and leaves
Bright is the creek
As it rolls through the fields
And gathers and brings and leaves
Bright were your eyes
As they gazed at the sea
And filled with the blue and the green
What have they seen
When I woke up I was not scared
This is what I entered
There was a forrest with a lake
And standing by my side
A man I knew so well
Waiting with our horses
I knew, like in a spell
I came across last night
He was saddling to go
Heading where the woods are
And I would follow in a row
Never left alone
And we all got on so well
A travel filled with banter
Easing the farewell
I slowly left behind
Bright is the source
As it runs from the ground
Of earth and grass and leaves
What has it seen?
