Being purple...

I'm standing in my balcony,
Sipping my morning tea.
The morning breeze has blown and brought
Into my lawn,
Some purple leaves ~
From the flowers of my neighbour's tree...

And I'm thinking of all the people
In my life today,
And those who have gone by...
All the people so far away from me
Those who I long to see,

And those who maybe I'd never see...

The purple flowers are ruffling the grass of my lawn
Looking happy..
Why did they choose to leave their tree,
And come to this land unknown..?
Arent they in some ways like me..?

I feel them adding colour into my life
And in my heart I hear a voice~
I too will splash my colours on this land and sky,
Life is about exploring all the sunshine and all the rain,
And the song on the radio plays~

"I'm leaving on jet plane
Don't know when I'll be back again..."
...and I just look at the purple leaves, and smile.

Since i'm accustomed to using a like button, i feel insufficient just typing 'i like it'. :)

"Earth wind and rain and fire,
Wealth power love desire,
One goal to live for before we die,
One taste of glory,
One mouthful of sky..."
