Ode To A Dream
If I could live anywhere, where would it be?
It would be warmed by the sun and filled with the fragrance of the sea.
If I could live anywhere, there would have to be white sand,
and the sounds of nature would be my own private band.
I would share it with the fishes and the seagulls flying high.
I’d be able to run out to the balcony and watch boats sailing by.
If I could live anywhere, it would be a place where my spirit felt free, and
it would even be close enough for my family to visit me.
Every part of my being would finally feel that I had arrived,
as I lay back on my blanket gazing at the night sky.
If I could live anywhere, happiness would be within my reach, because I would finally—after all these years—have a home on the beach.
