Always With Me

I lay there Under my shade tree The sun, streaming through its branches There's a warm breeze, mixed with summer smells All, taking me to another time. I listen I hear the children playing off in the neighborhood The birds, calling to each other The dogs barking All, takes me away from today All, taking me to another time. I was there again When my body was strong My mind was sucking in all and any My hopes were flowing with what, when and how The excitement of just living Taking me to another time. I want to lay here forever I don't want today to take me But, reality strikes as I struggle to get up Dinner needs to be made Feed the dogs, fold the laundry Taking me from this other time Until another time!
