In My Dreams
I would travel the world,
I would learn to speak the languages.
learn the culture.
I would enjoy the world and its offerings.
I would smile at the sunrise,
swallow the sunset,
and come back for seconds.
I would get lost in the written words,
I would savor the wine and cuisine;
I would be free,
get over my fear of falling
and fall for the rawness of the earth.
I would learn to smile for real.
I would learn to live.
