I wish I could lie here forever,
Basking in the warm summer's sun,
Ringing the bell of my red tricycle,
Waiting for the leaves to fall.
I wish I could reminisce here forever,
Watching the leaves fall to the ground,
Throwing my graduation cap up in the air,
Waiting for the snow to arrive.
I wish I could rest here forever,
Warming up by the crackling fire,
Snuggling with my two fast asleep girls,
Waiting for the flowers to bloom.
I wish I could swing here forever,
Swaying on the rickety porch swing,
Viewing the grandchild easter egg hunt,
Waiting for the sun to peer out,
But for now, I'll just keep living.
