Standing In A Meadow

poem by: Rachel Cartwright
Written on Feb 21, 2016

Standing in a meadow
A peaceful place to be
No one is here right now
Except for you and me

Painted lavender skies
The dusk is full of flowers
A field of dark green grass
I could sit out here for hours

I can see the sun setting
Above the distant trees
Your presence overwhelms me
And brings me to my knees

There’s a stillness to it all
Though the wind still is blowing
I can feel you all around me
As if me you were holding

I feel like singing to you
And dancing in your glory
You make me feel as I
Could fly like birds so freely

This is the moment
The moment of a lifetime
God you shine your glory
And amaze me every time

Every thing's so peaceful
As if it were a dream
The skies, the birds, the breeze
You made it all so gleam

Surrounded by your presence
Things as perfect as can be
Just my precious Lord and me
And this scenery...
