I have always enjoyed my solitude
I still do
But it is time to change my latitude and longitude
A place like Hawaii will do

Black sand beach
Shimmering waves
A place so far out of my reach 
This is what my soul craves

I can no longer take this sky scraper haven
It is time to spread my wings
Fly away like a raven
I need to hear the song the Hawaiian breeze sings

To me this place could never get boring
The beauty of these islands is amazing
Snorkeling and exploring
Under tropical sky at night star gazing

For now this is just a dream but a dream that will be achieved
New York will be a memory and long forgotten
One day when I make it to my destination I know I got there because I believed
Goodbye to the big apple that was rotten

    Can I come too, James? I've always wanted to see Hawaii and I, too, am ready to "spread my wings" and hear "the Hawaiian breeze sing." The Big Apple is a fun place to visit, but I wouldn't enjoy the hectic lifestyle there. Give me a tropical sky any night. Love, Carolyn
