Daily Meditation: Feeling Lost

We all need help maintaining our personal spiritual practice. We hope that these Daily Meditations, prayers and mindful awareness exercises can be part of bringing spirituality alive in your life.

Today's meditation features a song by folk singer Sibylle Baier. With beautiful poetry, Baier describes the feeling of being lost and remembering a time or place that she can no longer access. In moments like this, where do you turn?

I Lost Something In The Hills by Sibylle Baier

Every time I shed tears

in the last past years

when I pass through the hills

Oh what images return

Oh I yearn

for the roots of the woods

that origin of all my strong and strange moods

I lost something in the hills

I grew up in declivities

others grow up in cities

where first love and soul takes rise

there where times in my life

when I felt mad and deprived

and only the slopes gave me hope

when I pass through the leg high grass I shall die

under the jasmine I shall die

under the elder tree

I need not prepare for a new coming day

where is it that fills the deepness I feel

You will say I'm not Robin the Hood

But how could I hide from top to foot

that I lost something in the hills

I lost something in the hills

Oh I lost something in the hills

Now I lean on my window sill

and I cry, though it's silly

and I'm dreaming of off and away

Oh I know further west these hills exist

marked by apple trees marked by a straight brook

that leads me wherever I want it to

well I lost something in the hills

I lost something in the hills

Oh I lost something in the hills.
