The Valley

There was hope last night in the valley. It sure did feel like rain.

She said, “We are in no hurry… ” I said, “There’s no need to explain.”

I was alone before, not lonely… Said, “Peace of mind is hard to find.”

Her eyes just drifted past me. A silent stare said, ‘ Now you never mind.’

“You’re new here to the valley? ” Her smile said she knew.

I often count my blessings the way that lovers sometimes do.

I sometimes think about her… Her touch, her smile kind.

She said, “You can find me in the valley. If you’re ever in a bind.”
