Ponderings That Lead To YouI sit upon this hill and look out
Perchance, to reflect on past doubt;

And it shall be strong in that nothing would tether.

And to each their own, we still must console;
For this is our world, the one we share,
The one we must not ever leave bare.
Coming down I bring from this hill a clear view;
And all I can see now, is you.
