Some Time for Me

I feel the warmth of sunlight
As it shines upon my face.
I taste the salty water
As I lie here in this place.

I hear the chirps of little birds
As they sing up in their trees.
I feel the life in all the grass
As the blades tickle my knees.

And all the world is peaceful
In this place that’s just for me,
There’s nothing now to worry about
Just calm serenity.

But soon the magic’s over
And my eyes open to see,
The many different people
Who always seem to need me.

My advice is always better
Than some stranger who’s next door,
And my time must be so special,
For they’re always wanting more.

And I will always give it
For that is who I am,
And I’ll never know how doing it
Has ruined all my plans.

And though I may remember
That place made just for me,
I never shall return there
For people just won’t let me be.

It’s not that I don’t love them,
Because I truly do,
It’s just I want so time for me,
Don’t you?
