the sun was hot and the grass was smiling green
the air had a gentle breeze and it was lovely to stand in the shade
of wild trees

and i took my shirt off and sat in the hot sun for a while and it felt good

i needed to drink up sun and I did

voices whispered in my head of joy and the end of dread a promise given and accepted
never forgotten always held

as i sat and dreamed in the heat
of a river and a woman
and a place where the sidewalks welcome my feet

i rose with a sigh and a smile friends together

tears holding hands with laughter
