Peace of Mind

from by Amy Gillespie



There's a searching space in your eyes today,
Where the land meets the sea
and the sea meets the sky,
where the mountains climb and the eagle flies,
But when that north wind blows you'll be gone,
By and bye.

But no babe, i can never be,
All those things you want
and all those things you need,
And not for love nor money's sake
will i walk the path
that endless yearning takes.

There's a careful weight in your leaving words
and I feel them turn heavy, heavy in my mind,
But they will not touch my racing heart
and with no place to rest, with you
they must depart.


But that north wind came with its game of chance
and it drew you and I such very different hands,
But i feel no ache, nor hollow pain
for this land we love is the same, the same, the same...

There's a joyful dance in the light as it plays
where the land meets the sea
and the sea meets the sky,
Where the hills roll beneath the buzzard's eyes,
there's enough laying quiet to forever find,
there's enough right here for my
peace of mind.
