Crystal Lake

By Bruce Clifford

The Crystal Lake was there
In between the doubts and fears
Stop and listen to the sounds
What was then is now upside down

The fortunate have their way
Each time on a different day
Whispering silence on my back
The promise of another attack

Each day we search a little
Give a little
Each day we cry a little
Laugh a little

Each day we try a little
Smile a little
Each day we live a little
Twist a little

The Crystal Lake from near and far
In between the earth and the stars
Making sounds in the memory wave
Upside down in a world to be saved

Each day we search a little
Give a little
Each day we cry a little
Laugh a little

Each day we try a little
Smile a little
Each day we live a little
Twist a little

9/14/19 Bruce Clifford
