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.
“Good morning”, says the sun
Bright and early it appears.
Beyond the horizon, out at sea
Oh! The day looks clear.
Silence, as this side of the world wakes
Silence, the only thing I hear.
I start my day with a view like this.
PS. I took the above picture from my office’s roof deck.
I looked out of the window where the sun was not yet up
I could see the clouds dancing with the wind
Before me was a sight to behold
Her and that blue dress
Made me look like such a mess
I’d fallen for her, who would’ve guessed?
I wouldn’t have noticed her at first but now I’m stressed
Because she walks by
As she smiles and says “hi”
But now I’m just another guy
She loves someone else now, not I
And if I had known at that time that I’d feel the same
I wouldn’t have played her on this game
Now I am put to shame
As she walks on by calling his name
To cut a hair that’s all the long
A change of view wouldn’t be so wrong
To sing a song from old
Sounds kind of new and gold
A make up and maybe none or just less
Could be grand or a huge mess
Change things up for a change
I take a step back and I look at the view
I inhale the air, I’m still feeling blue
I don’t quite know what will happen
Eyes wide and bright, mind sharpened
I’m looking at the top from here
I’ll get there someday and tons will surely cheer
She stared at the horizon
She took it all in and she just sat there
Do not despair
Challenges are opportunities if you learn the lessons
It can get tough
Most often it seems best to quit
But the view can only be seen if you climb the mountain
So hold on and stay strong
If not, stronger
The house on the hill overlooking the sea
Enjoying both the mountain’s view
And the warm beach breeze
Oh I’d like to live in such a place
The world at your doorstep
Wouldn’t that be grand?
