Wilderness (for Joy)

Ancient trees reach majestically for untouchable deep blue skies

Casting their shadows over crowded, isolated jungles

Powerful cobalt oceans surge in search of wondrous lands

And the crystal sands of deserted islands accept their sweeping tides

All manner of majestic beasts strive for continued existence

Every example an amazing achievement in itself

A rarity each one in its own unique environment

Polished a million times by their own remote wilderness,

Through which the only true beauty of nature can exist

A million stars that forever remain out of reach

Come together to set the perfect wilderness backdrop

Yet one body outshines the combined beauty of them all

She is my wilderness, you are my wilderness
