Beyond The Distant Hills

Poem By David Harris

The sun is shining for me,
beyond the distant hills.
Where my love is waiting,
for my return.
The water is sweet to drink,
beyond the distant hills,
where a warm fire is waiting,
for my return.

The grass bends in the breeze,
beyond the distant hills.
Where my love’s heart yearns
for my return.
A candle lights a window,
beyond the distant hills.
Where someone keeps a watchful eye,
for my return.

Beyond the distant hills,
where no clouds gather,
and no storms darken the sky.
Beyond the distant hills,
bright eyes wait for my return.
Beyond the distant hills,
my dreams will come true,
and I promised myself one day I will get there.

25 April 1988

So great this poem David... My love is a bit futher beyond the distant hills, over sea and valleys low over moutains high caped with snow, across sacred rivers and still far to go.. But one day soon, i will let her know...10 for you so there you go...

As The Years Pass Along

When the snow is gone,
we will remember this winter
for a long time to come.
We will remember being told not to go to work,

Just Beyond The Sunset

Just beyond the sunset
Someone waits for me
Just beyond the sunset
Lies my destiny

If I Ruled The World

If I ruled the world,
many changes I would make.
It would be required
that happiness shone

My Dreams

My dreams sail through uncharted waters
looking for a place to land.
A place to become fertile
so I can touch them with my hand.

A Caring Heart

A caring heart will never stray
even when its owner has to go away.
It will think of its happy home
dismissing thoughts of wanting to roam.


As each year begins to close,
we reflect over the passing one
remembering the highlights
along with the year’s woes.
