Carpe Diem

 ​

Don’t weigh me down

With might have beens,

Would haves, could haves

Or should have seen.

My soul can’t live

On dreams and wishes

And empty dishes.

I need to feel 

The grass beneath

My feet

The water lapping at my ankles

The wind tugging

At my hair.

I need to

Seize the day,

Live the day,

Hold the day

My way.

Come play

With me

Stay with me

Ride the wind with me

For as long as we can.
