The Sitting Bench
Sit with me awhile, won't you?
The day is hot, the sun caressing
I need a little rest
Sit with me awhile, will you?
I long to glance and seize the scenery
With my eyes wide
Sit with me awhile can you?
Take in the flowers, trees, and bees
And birds who chirp and please
Sit with me today
Join me for a drink and let us think
On the good times we have shared
Sit with me tomorrow
Keep it up lest sorrow overtake us
Enjoying the greenery
Sit with me awhile
I love to watch you smile
And grin with those somewhat imperfect teeth
It's those quirky things those little imperfections that
I love most
Sit with me and drink tea
Sit with me and drink beer
Sit with me and just be.
