The California Anthem
By Kristi Bitgood-Kelty
Well the seasons come and the seasons go,
Nothing ever stays the same......
There's one thing I know that will never change;
That's the love of the land from which I came.
With the waves upon your shoreline,
Will you call me home when my life is done,
To rest in your hills so fine....
From your rocky shore
To your forests green,
To your valleys deep and wide,
There's a light I see on the faces there,
And a spirit you just can't hide.
Many years have passed since I roamed the hills
In the golden glow of sunlight,
As the darkness falls around me now,
I love you with all my might!
