I really think my favorite thing
Is having time to spare
To find that I have peace of mind
And time with self to share

I think it might be thoughts of free
The dream of endless love
To watch a face that shares a smile
To think at times of God above

It might just be to think of things
Without the rush of living
To find a day to pass away
With hours so forgiving

Itís the looking round and finding
That life has been quite kind
To relies that you live so free
And dreams are there to find

To sit back and to contemplate
Then find some words to share
To write a poem that some may like
To find thereís love out there

To wake when day does show her grace
And not leave home when dark
To go to bed and feel content
And somehow leave my mark

My favorite thing, it seems to be
To find that I have space
To do some things I like to do
Before Iíve run my race

I would love my favorite pastime to be
able to simply share MORE time!

      ... then I wonder when my last pitstop was and if I might be low on water!

    I enjoyed both the calm and the pace of this, thanks!

I wish I had more space and more time as well, and more ability to enjoy myself...

Makes me tired.

Enjoyed your poem.

Hi Rick, great poem old cobber, I thoroughly enjoyed it. I just hope that one

of the things you like to do is cutting my hedge, anyway that will do for a start.


Have a great day and may the sun shine upon you every day, between showers, that is.
