Barb Ryman: Music/Listen

Picture Us

(© Barb Ryman)

 

I can picture us down the road

Our love has grown into a home

A little cabin on a woodland hill

Plants and stones on the windowsill

Now and then our friends come by

We gather ’round an open fire

Sharing songs and harmonies

Stories, laughs, and poetries

 

In the morning hike the old back roads

Wade the streams to the grass meadows

Have a picnic of cheese and wine

Bread and jam in the dandelions 

We can spend our afternoons

In any way that we want to

Laughing, dancing, dreaming, resting

Making love and counting blessings

 

Come on baby, will you take the chance

Have you had enough of the sidestep dance?

We’ve got the picture and the love we feel

Let’s step it up and make it real

Then we can dedicate our wishes

To a life that’s so delicious

We won’t ever want to end it

Like a garden we will tend it

 

Now and then our friends come by

We gather ’round an open fire

Sharing songs and harmonies

Stories, laughs, and poetries
