For a Country Lass

The city howls a sad song
for a weary soul longing for home
One silent heart that stills
In the dark of night that chills

A country lass in a crowded place
Against the tide and battling waves
Of people whose surface eyes can’t see
Life is deeper than what’s defined in society

She gets her flute and tries to play
As she sits waiting for the light of day
Where dreams shine, and hopes are brighter
And her burdens and troubles lighter

Her restless heart is a reminder
There’s more to now, there’s something better
That will unfold if she believes
With faith unwavering, even while she grieves.
