THE GREAT DIVIDE

[2009]

Deep is the longing in the heart that ever strives
The expanses far and wide that still confine
The simple facts that yet lay waiting to be found,
as lost as some forgotten promised land

Consider reasons, through long goodbyes
Looking back for one last time

Just for a second look into your heart,
as you stand and look across the great divide
remember all the things that you will leave behind,
as you set out across the vast and great divide

Guard and defend when forces hinder and collide
Solemn intentions, both blessed and divine
You still pulled victory from shattered hope
Calmed your doubts with broken smiles
Covered your hurt in your pride

No need for reasons
None to confide
Look back and bid farewell for one last time

Just for a second look into your heart,
as your stand and look across the great divide
Remember all the things that you will leave behind,
as you set out across the vast and great divide

Just for a second look into my eyes,
as you stand and look across the great divide,
as you let go of tears for what you leave behind,
while looking back again to say farewell for one last time
