Salty hair, sandy feet
Listen to your heart beat
Beating with the flow of the waves
Look at the way it misbehaves.
The seashells beautify the shore
They let your worries disappear, they are no more.
Bury your feet on the sand
This simple life, isn’t it grand?
Salty hair and sandy feet
This life is simple but complete.
A smile so natural, you don’t know what it does to me.
Hoping someday you’ll see
That you and I could become “we”
That would be a plus!
There’s nothing else to discuss.
I hope to me, you’d be interested
Because with myself, I am infuriated
As I can’t keep straight the things I’ve stated
I am much too infatuated
I haven’t forgotten about you
I haven’t forgotten your smile,
Precious and alluring.
I haven’t forgotten your laugh
Or your voice that’s powerful and soothing.
I try to replace all the traces of you
But I haven’t the slightest clue
No idea what to do.
From the sky it fell
Putting the world under its spell
Listen to the splish and the splash
The pitter patter of it trying to wash
Whatever needs it most
Listen to the rain’s lullaby
Hush, hush, hush, goodnight and goodbye
I cried in silence
I didn’t want anyone to know.
Not that no one cared
I just thought they wouldn’t understand.
They may think I’m fickle
They may think I just want to be noticed.
So I say nothing
Pretend I’m fine
Fake a smile
And laugh a lie
But I’m broken and I know I need to fix myself
I stayed out late until it was pitch dark,
I sat on the grass, reclining on the tree bark.
The noise of the city
Fading in the distance slowly.
I bask under the glow and beauty of the sunset,
I take in the view while listening to the House Sparrow’s duet.
I stretch my arms and legs, grateful for this moment
Looking forward to more days like this on my retirement.
How thin is thin?
When will it be enough?
Count the carbs
Count the calories
Count the pounds and the kilograms
Count the tears
Count the frustrations
Count the failures and the success
But when will it all end?
How thin is thin?
When will I be enough?
