Oh Those Southern Nights KKD
 

Oh Those Southern Nights



From the Mighty Mountains
of the Blue Ridge of Virginia
To the beautiful white sandy beaches
Of sunny Florida

I have spent my life
Between the two
So many memories
To carry me thru

With a friend down a country road
On the back of bike
Or along the beautiful ocean
What a breath taking sight

Sitting on my porch
Listening to the whip-o-wills sing
Or upon an ocean's shore
Simple life's pleasures this does bring

Listening to that southern wind
rustling thru the trees
Or on the beach
feeling that warm sea breeze

The leaves turning
Brilliant Oranges and Reds
Or the awesome weather
One never dreads

Enjoying the silence
Of hearing the snow hit the ground
Or sitting next to the ocean
Where not a flake can be found

Next thing you know
Bon fires are in store
Or you sit and listen
To the ocean's roar

Such wondrous gifts
God does give
I thank Him
For these places lived

The awesome night skies
With those twinkling lights
Oh how I do love
The beautiful Southern Nights

ღ God asked me how long I planned on keeping you in my life.
I smiled and said...
How do I choose between always and forever...
But then I have found that's really not up to me... ღ
