We sit out on the balcony,
The sun comes up so warm.
The birds sing us a melody,
New thoughts begin to form.
Of beaches, white with sparkling sand,
Of fragrances so sweet.
Of palm trees swaying from the land
And coming hours of heat.
Of lazing in the warm, moist air
Savoring the slendor.
Drinking tall cool glasses there
Of fruits joined in the blender.
Of playing in the ocean waves,
Then warming in the sun.
Becoming new beachcombing slaves
Until each day is done.
Of dining on exotic fish
Whos names we've never heard.
Sampling each and every dish,
New taste buds being stirred.
Of lazy nights , with pleasant dreams
Of peaceful, content rest.
We're in paradise, it seems!
Oh God, How we've been blessed.
