Picture Window

Words & Music by K.R.Lee (c) 2006
(This song was inspired by a friend who bought a house with a picture window, but it became evident in time that this song was meant for a couple I ended up meeting a few years later who have a beautiful retreat in the backwoods of Maine. Their beautiful land is now becoming a gathering place for various kinds of spiritual gatherings from all hemispheres of the globe.)
Here once sat a man and his wife
who looked across the way to the quarries and the woodlands.
They came to live a simple life ~
one that those who love the earth can understand.

This home was crafted here by hand
but it was from their hearts that gave this house its soul.
And at the dawning and the setting of each day,
they found their center looking out this picture window.

A picture perfect view was framed by one
inspired by this land
to call to mind each day the oneness of all life.
For it's the earth that had sustained him
and provided him this home
that he was blessed to share for years beside his wife.

And now this home and land is yours.
You are its guardian with Spirit in control.
And it will gather to this place
the ones It needs to co-create Its visioned goal.

And now it's you and I who sit beside
this picture perfect window
exchanging insights that this journey here has wrought.
And we will gather here with those whom Spirit
brings to work together
and each will benefit from every lesson sought.

This home was crafted here by hand,
but it is reverence for life that gives it soul.
And at the dawning and the setting of each day,
you'll find your center looking out this picture window.

And so it's you alone who sits beside
this picture perfect window
reflecting back upon this journey you've been on.
And though the bigger plan for what will be
is hidden from your view,
you know without a doubt you're here where you belong.
This sacred ground you stand upon is your heart's . . .
home!
