Leraine Horstmanshoff - Desert Song
Stars are shining in the heavens tonight
The desert wind is whispering softly
A night bird singing a sweet lullaby
Scent of sage it clears my eyes
And if this was my last breath of air
I could leave here so freely
Knowing that there’s such beauty
Shining down on me
Circle of life is with us tonight
The fire so warm, it’s like a friend by my side
Coyotes howling at the rising full moon
The desert is thriving in the four corners tonight
And if this was my last breath of air
I could leave here so freely
Knowing that there’s such beauty
Shining down on me
A thousand years since the ancient ones
The stories copied in the red canyon walls
The San Juan is chanting as she drifts on by
Moving stars and falling tails
And if this was my last breath of air
I could leave here so freely
Knowing that there’s such beauty
Shining down on me …
shining down on everyone
I’m so in love with you
I could die for you, yes I would die for you
Life is so precious, you have shown me that
Life is for living, you have given me hope
You have given me faith, you have given me peace
You have given me love
