A slice of paradise

ups and downs 
i couldn't be found... 
cries and tries 
smiles and frowns... 

hugs and drugs 
sleeping on rugs... 
wet cold nights 
mosquitoes and bugs... 

flights and lights 
nurses in white... 
get well soon 
no family insight... 

thoughts and wishes 
beautiful bridges... 
fights and scars 
and so many stitches... 

hopes and dreams 
a love that sings... 
the one that gleams 
means everything... 

eyes real wide 
a feeling inside... 
should i say goodbye? 
or marry a lie... 

traces of steps 
love or regret... 
bruised and confused 
trying to forget... 

chance a romance 
lets see where we land... 
love the impossible 
with dirt on your hands... 

the seed of a breed 
that grows like a tree... 
the life that i breathe 
has set me free... 

our names in the sand 
with a breeze so nice... 
as we die in the life 
with a slice of paradise...
