Have you ever seen the sun rise?
Witnessed with your own two eyes?
Watching exactly how it went?
Not through someone else’s photo captured moment
You’ll really enjoy it more if you view it live
& you’ll appreciate just being alive
Amelia Island, Florida
I’ve watched the sun rise countless mornings
It’s like my own private showings
Each one completely different in every way
& the best way to start any day
They’re bright & beautiful
You’ll never feel the same once you’ve experienced it
& so many will never understand the feeling you get
It’s hard to explain but I’ll do my best
I’d imagine it’s like fresh air deepily inhaled into your chest
Your lungs fill up with all the freshness
& you exhale all that causes you stress
Your worries all just disappear
Your mind is calm & clear
It’s a feeling that just forever stays
Until your dying days
Joy & happiness is all you release
It is what brings you inner peace
All you care to do now is enjoy everything
No matter the troubles & obstacles life may bring
A happy soul is all you’ve got & need
Your heart has compassion & optimism is what you bleed
Sharing your smile with all you pass or whoever you meet
That is your favorite way to say hello & greet
All from experiencing a live sun rise happen
That all may seem impossible to imagine
All that out of just a sun rising?
When it happens to you, it IS quite surprising
Shocking at first, you just can’t believe how you feel
& you wonder how can this even be real?
If you allow yourself to let go of your worries & any doubt
Then you make room to clearly feel what it’s about
You’re allowing yourself to be vulnerable
& that’s when you become more relatable
Clearing your clouded mind of opinions from useless chatter
Let’s you finally enjoy what most may think our say doesn’t really matter
Those are the ones who don’t pay a lot of attention
& are afraid to get lost in their imagination
Never will they set a foot out of their “safe” box & risk crossing that thin line
It’s OK, it’s their loss & that’s just fine
They’ll just never understand your constant positive attitude
& can’t recall a time you were even the slightest bit rude
They will never know how to just live happily
Inside their soul will be dying slowly
Some won’t see how beautiful a sun rise really is
It’s something no one should ever miss
A sun rise & even a sum set
Are too amazing to just forget!!
I love to escape to Amelia Island, Florida. Escaping to the beach, escaping to afternoon naps on the patio with the sea breeze on me. Escaping to see large turtles lumbering through the sand dunes and occasionally onto the patio. Most of all, escaping to brilliant sunrise and breathtaking moonrises over the ocean.
