Inside my eyelids..Poetry
What a wonderful way to chase away the dreaded wintertime blues
Inside my eyelids stored visions are kept safely hidden away
Sometimes probing eyes attempt to enter my private sanctuary
I quickly blink rapidly, causing a wispy flyaway
The stored visions are memories of happiness, sadness and sorrow but mostly fun filled hours on sandy beaches on a sunlit tropical shore
Sunbathing, walking hand-in-hand on white glistening sand
Now who could possibly ask for anything more?
Days and nights dancing to the beat of ragga music, enjoying the unique culture on Montego Bay
Oh how I love to look back and feel the fun, surfing and watching the beautiful swans
As they dance and gracefully sway
When the days turn cold and I want to revisit my stored memories, I close my eyelids and see happy times whenever I choose
What a magnificent way
To chase away the dreaded wintertime blues.
