Come with Me –
I want to go with you in a field of flowers today,
so come away with me and we’ll play.
Grab your mitt, ball, and bat and
don’t forget to feed the cats.
Home plate will be the old tree stump, it’s still
serves as a reminder to our lives where
many a memory still reside.
First base will be the weeping willow where we have
dazed under on many a hot summer day in its shade.
Second base will be the corner of the old red barn where
we have ventured with our son and taught him how to explore
life just for fun.
Third base will be the edge at a bend in a forgotten stream
that has been flowing for years with all our dreams.
It still sparkles as the sun over high catches the ripples as
it flows by.
So come with me this day
For with you there’s always time to play.
