To Spend A Day With You

I can see it now, clearly some how
We would both just be thinking wow
Just for a chance, to spend a day with you
What would we do
We would chat awhile, check out your Isle
Drink Starbucks coffee it would make us smile
It would be great, just to see your face

All morning we’d talk, go for a walk
Kicking stones down a lazy block
It would be neat, to spend a day with you
What if we knew
That the song we’d sing, laughs it would bring
All cares in the world from us we would fling
It would be great, just to see your face

Many things to see, fun it would be
lunching under a canopy
Sweet it would be, to spend a day with you
All colors hue
In the trees of green, blue sky that’s seen
In a garden of flowers so pristine
It would be great, just to see your face

We’d watch the sun set, there’s no regret
Taking pictures so we won’t forget
Oh what a way, to spend the day with you
I love the view
Of your long brown hair, for this I care
You’d give a smile to say you like my stare
It would be great, just to see your face

Sitting on that beach, hands we’d reach
Good feelings felt no need for speech
In friendship love, to spend a day with you
What else to do
I would wink at you, smile would ensue
We would have to hug for an hour or two
It would be great, just to see your face.

A nice desire for a great day.
A light and tender thought of
someone special

Just a guy who loves to write; poetry, lyrics, short stories and random thoughts… it is my passion. Photography is my second passion as I love to capture the world around me… to make time stop and to savor a subject forever.

    Well said – so expressive and understated…leaving just the right amount to the imagination. Masterful.

    When Anna had come here from Australia Rog we had spent an entire day in Newburyport Mass walking amid the masses and just rummaging through all the lovely shops, etc.
    It was a day that I will never forget. I had in fact written a poem very similar to the one you wrote here. I entitled it, “Our day in the sun.”
    Thank you my friend for bringing me back to that time and place. Man it sort of feels good, but it sort of hurts as well, but it is the hurt that assures me that I truly and indeed loved Anna very much.

    Thanks again brother…..

    Steve – I know man – I guess if it’s never hurt, it’s never quite appreciated properly. Friendships could be the same way. But then again, a chance to hang out with a good friend for a day is a great thing, another stone in the wall of friendship.

    Back at a Bro….
