Whisper in the forest,
wind in the tree,
let me go in silence
let me be free
the birds a song singing,
the butterflies swinging
the warm sunshine so warm,
takes me softly in the great spirits arm
under my feet the grass feels, gently
and the great spirit leads me friendly
moon and the stars coming in the night
I am not afraid, they give me light
I can sleep peacefully and in a dream dive,
Oh Great Spirit, I am grateful
for my life!
Forever Loved and missed.
