Today I will wake up and sing in the shower.
I will dance and get dressed in pink.
I will taste my coffee drop by drop and
name each drop in a funny way, so I’ll laugh.

Today I will ignore the traffic on my way to work.
I will not look grumpy at the man stepping
on my feet, inside the bus full of people.
I will not let work to exhaust me, not today.

Today I will give all the money in my wallet
to the poor person with wide open hands,
begging for few coins to buy a bread.
I will help the old lady with bags to cross the street.

Today I will write about kisses warming my heart,
like the sun warms the sand on the beach during summer.
I will think about white roses, cheesecake
and hot nights with lights in blue around.

Today I will not care that I forgot
my umbrella at home, when outside is raining.
I will let my dreams about love and romance
to be tied to a kite and fly freely into the sky.

Today I will smile and live with excitement, with pleasure,
because today is the day to see you again.

  2. The Reason You Come Says:

    Oh, the anticipation and excitement, when you know you’re about to see the one who makes your day. You don’t – and you won’t – let anyone rain on your parade! I love the happiness and romance in this piece!

  3. chakasichangi Says:

    This is such a feel good piece. Makes me feel like dancing in the rain, or jumping around in my room with music on blast. :)

    Its something that a lot of people can relate to, and I admire that kind of writing.
    Einstein once said that, ‘Any fool can make something complicated, but it takes a genius to make something simple’.

    You’ve captured a state-of-mind in one poem. A state of elation that makes one oblivious to things that would otherwise make one easily irritable.

    I love this.

    Yours sincerely,
    Philharmonic poet.
