Laying On The Grass

Laying on the grass I’m dreaming of you And me, We three, Our family. Our days in the sun Looking forward, Greener pastures Ours to claim, Our land. Fruit trees and vegies Fresh for picking, An orchard Of eden, Our garden. Hatching chickens, Tending goats, Baking cakes, bread And love, Our life. Early morning alone […]
