Wildflower -- Artist: Skylark

While listening to the radio in the car the other day this song came on... I love the words. It's an old song. It was on the Top 10 list in 1973.

W I L D F L O W E R

She's faced the hardest times you could imagine,
And many times her eyes fought back the tears.
And when her youthful world was about to fall in
Each time her slender shoulders bore the weight of all her fears,
and her sorrow no one hears, still rings in midnight silence,
in her ears...

Let her cry, for she's a Lady
Let her dream, for she's a Child
Let the rain fall down upon her
She's a free and gentle flower, growing wild.

And if by chance, I should hold her,
Let me hold her for a time;
But if allowed just one posession,
I would pick her from the garden, to be mine.

Be careful how you touch her, for she will waken;
and sleep's the only freedom that she knows.
And when you walk into her eyes, you won't believe;
The way she's always payin' for a debt she never owed,
and the silent wind still blows, that only she can hear,
And so, she goes.

Let her cry, for she's a Lady
Let her dream, for she's a Child
Let the rain fall down upon her
She's a free and gentle flower, growing wild.

It's amazing how a song can bridge space and time. I was just listening to the same song, the harp player on this song truly adds a depth of emotion to the lyrics. I can sorta reverse relate to you Jen. I left a great life in another country to come back to Cincinnati to help care for parents. Unfortunatly that was 2 years ago and I still haven't escaped this city; say a prayer for me.
