Apache Tear

I laid an Apache Tear down in the forest
Inside an inukshuk I built under a tree
Like a little shelter for you to rest
In this place I call The Sanctuary

Throughout the mountain, this place is unique
With its cedar trees and tumbling rocks
Protected by the sharp winds from the peak
And speckled with evergreen moss

Heavy tears roll down my cheeks
As I recall how we had said
We would come here when we’d meet
And run together once again

It is hard to let you go
But your soul needs to roam
Of all the places that I know
This one’s the best to be your home

I laid an Apache Tear
With my eyes welled up again
But I know I will be back here
Filled with thoughts of you, my friend.
