Let Me Drift Away

Let me drift away,

when the days become lazy and slow.

The warm sun beckons to me,

to walk along the paths,

where spring flowers bloom,

through the woods where pine trees tall,

reach up to the bright blue sky above

and birds trill in the trees –

a happy melody.

 

Let me drift away in contentment,

smiling all the while,

I’ll go forward,

dreaming the dreams of yesterday,

when life was so easy

and the door of childhood was still open.

Still, the child in my heart remains

and I find the true joy –

with each new spring.

 

Let me drift away,

as the river flows by

and seagulls and ducks,

dance upon the waves,

sparkling like tiny diamonds,

in the sun

and my heart feels so much lighter,

as the burdens of the harsh winter –

simply melt away.

 

Let me drift away,

find the peace I am seeking,

just to be one with the new coming spring.

The green grass and the trees,

the rocks along the roadway,

each one a story to tell,

while a soft breeze swishes by,

playfully lifting my hair –

I’m so glad I could cry.

 

Let me drift away,

like a sailboat upon the sea,

the wind giving my sails wings,

to behold the wondrous things all about.

Past majestic lighthouses,

my sailboat dancing  upon the waves,

my face turned towards the wind,

knowing there will be a new adventure,

just around the bend –

my smile never ending.

    Drifting away – one of my favorite things to do Rasma. Just like Ralph I would love to drift to that same place. Very inspirational and beautiful to say the least.

    This sounds amazing Rasma. Like unplugging for a while. Let me drift away as well. Find my nest of salt, upon the cresting waves and umbrella drinks. Sounds like a great idea.

      It can be a great thing to do in daydreams if you cannot get away for real, Jamie.
