~ Spirit Mountain ~

In the land of the sky
within the Creator's deep sigh
springs a majestic mountain
like life's own fountain

Spirit Mountain stands proud and tall
The four winds whisper it's call
It stands like a giant sentinel
of ancestors of long ago it tells

From my life's very start
Spirit Mountain called to my heart
As a small spirited child
I ran these mountains free and wild

Each time the four winds touch my face
My spirit revisits this place
I follow a lone winding trail
where ancestor's foot prints and silent tears fell

As I walk these hills
My soul's spirit stills
This land of my grandfather's before me
who walked proud and free

I look down to where the valleys lie
across the night's sky
Flashes of sheet lightening fly by
Striking like white ghosts
While the grumbling thunder plays host.

It strikes in my soul deep ...
What does it seek
is it trying to speak?
And what secrets does it still keep

In the night's still air
within the moonlight's glare
my soul is made  aware
of spirit's presence still there

My heart embraces this old hunting ground
Where ancestors arrow heads I found
Spirit Mountain speaks of ancestor's time
It's message I hold in heart and mind

As my spirit walks through the lush green grass
I know my life is fleeting fast
Revisiting youthful dreams of the past
but knowing here my spirit will always last

I can see this place with no eyes
spirit floating across the Creator's skies
where streams and valleys still lies
Here my loved one's spirits never dies

I come to Spirit Mountain in dreams
Riding these trails forever it seems
My spirit always rides here alone
for it is my soul's only home

Spirit Mountain is where I grew strong
It is where my heart still belongs
My spirit is wrapped in it's eternal fold
For it is the pathway to my soul

My life's path has been wide
Spirit Mountain dwells yet deep inside
I hold it strong to my heart's memory
Where my soul and spirit still runs free.
