The pounding in my head
Never seems to stop
My temples throb with pain
My vision blurs and wanes
My stomach twists in knots
There’s ringing in my ears
This migraine won’t go away
Can someone make this stop
When I am sitting down by the ocean
There is a sense of peace that comes
Like a wave that washes over me
Bringing a sense of tranquility
I look out across the blue ocean
That stretches out beyond the horizon
And know that someone out there
Is looking right back at me
There are moments in life
Where we seem to lose sight
Of all the things in our lives
That should matter the most
So we should take the time
To take a deep breath or two
And slow things down a bit
To enjoy the little things in life
There is nothing quite like being in nature.
The wind that rustles through the trees above;
The river that rushes down the hill side;
Birds that chirp and fly through the air;
Deer that graze peacefully nearby.
Everything is acting and living in harmony.
There is not a worry in the world
As I close my eyes and soak it all in.
More often than we care to admit
We get carried away with the day’s demands.
We feel the need that we need to busy ourselves
With tasks that don’t always need our attention.
Yet it seems that this way of life is addicting
Since we follow this pattern day in and day out.
So I want you to take this moment
To just breathe.
The stars twinkle and shine in the calm night sky
Not a cloud is in sight, not a sound can be heard.
I lay peacefully under this calm night sky
Basking in the serenity that I am rarely afforded.
For it is hard to find peace in a place like this
When you are buried six feet under the ground.
Family and friends are all gathered near
Laughter and love emanate from here
This wonderful time of the year
From both love and sorrow we shed a tear
There is nothing that is quite like this
No other time that we all miss
The presents and food and family bliss
Under the mistletoe with the Christmas kiss
