Author: Kara Stadel


The warm rays of sun
beat down on my face
I'm going through life
at a slow steady pace

I'm walking on sand
with my small naked feet
The only sound I hear
is my gentle heart beat

The cool salty air
invades through my nose
I feel the cool grass
tickle my toes

I hear the sweet laughter
of small children playing
Loving my life
is all that I'm saying

I look in the mirror
and grow a big smile
I'm beautiful now
I have been awhile

The birds outside
are singing their song
I know their sweet melody
and start to sing along

The rest of my days
will surely be like this
As long as the sun greets me
with a warm gentle kiss

I felt that you were extremly happy. You seem to be very content with life. Thats good. You don't find that, that often. kutgw
