Reflections

The song, "Reflections" is a metaphor of the reflections in a pond being like the thoughts and memories that run through our minds. Some are beautiful; some may not be so attractive; yet none are real. They are only thoughts we have collected over the years and are as elusive as the reflection of the mountains in the pond.

Lyrics
Reflections
There's a pond in the hollow,
Its surface smooth as glass
On an autumn evening cold and crisp and still.
Mirrored in its surface
Are burnished blades of grass,
Snow-capped peaks, and rolling, brush-strewn hills,

Reflections in the pond seem so near, yet are far
Like reflections running through my mind.
And they seem so real, but reflections are
Just elusive
Illusions of my mind.

The bright hues of the sunset
Are now reflected there
On the surface of the pond so still and calm.
Purple blends with scarlet
Amid sun's final glare
Sending to my soul a healing balm.

Reflections in the pond seem so near, yet are far
Like reflections running through my mind.
And they seem so real, but reflections are
Just elusive
Illusions of my mind.

Reflections in the pond seem so near, yet are far
Like reflections running through my mind.
And they seem so real, but reflections are
Just elusive
Illusions of my mind.

In the face of the pond now,
I see the evening star,
And it seems so real I want to feel its glow.
Ere my fingers touch it,
It flees and ripples mar
Beautiful illusions of my soul

Reflections in the pond seem so near, yet are far
Like reflections running through my mind.
And they seem so real, but reflections are
Just elusive
Illusions of my mind.
