PLACES FAR AWAY
There comes a time every day,
When I dream of places far away.
Of sandy beaches and sunlit rays,
And magnificent sunsets all ablaze.
Where all is peaceful and serene,
And I once again turn nineteen.
A place I can escape to with ease,
A place harboring no disease.
A place that has no sadness or pain,
And I never hear anyone complain.
A place having laughter abound,
Bringing joy to all around.
My time is limited in this magic spot
I must return to what is not.
Perhaps one day I can stay,
In places far away.
