With all the gentle creatures, I would like to stay
And learn all their secrets and watch them as they play
I would like to remain with them for longer than a day
So I can learn their language and hear all they say
So now that I am here, inside my quiet place
I can picture all the animals filling up this space
I can see the little lambs and all the rabbits too
With their peaceful natures shining right through.
There are also baby deer and chipmunks all around
They are playing together, true friendship they have found
Birds of every kind sing sweetly in the trees
While I am deeply touched by the quiet evening breeze.
I am now able to go back to embrace the world outside
For I carry in my mind all these images from inside.
And if I should get frazzled or upset once again
I can go back to my safe place and find my peace within
