Life is Yours
Have you ever wondered about sitting on a cloud?
Drifting over countries and seas,
looking down on mountains and trees. . .
Have you ever lain on your back in the sand?
Watching the sky above. . .
feeling nothing but pure, deep love. . .
Have you ever pictured being the highest branch in a tree?
Waving in the wind. . .
proud, high and distinct. . .
Have you ever cherished a scent that was unique?
Burning sand on a plain. . .
hot asphalt in the rain. . .
Are you still looking under trees and between leaves?
For gnomes in red and white,
and elves, feather light. . .
Are you often finding your eyes. . .
Searching the sky. . .
for UFO's flying by. . .
Are you allowing yourself to dream
No matter how hard life may sometimes seem?
Keep the child within you alive. . .
It's the secret behind every drive.
This life is yours my friend. . .
Enjoy it till the end.
