The Sweet Taste of Life

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I now live in Daytona Beach, Florida. .

There is a taste to life,

that is sometimes so very sweet.

Other times it can be bitter,

but we have to take the good with the bad.

Whenever life is good,

it’s like the day is brighter -

than the rest.

There is a sweetness,

on my tongue

and I just want to embrace,

all the beauty that surrounds.

When the bad days come,

that bring tears coming down,

the saltiness reminds me,

of the mist blowing from the sea.

Come the rains,

pouring down,

that feels so good

and I spread my arms,

as the raindrops,

wash all the tears away

and I go dancing among the raindrops.

Life can be a mix,

of so many things.

It can make us want,

to spread out our arms

and wish we could fly away,

with the winds that blow,

with the birds up high.

It can make us want,

to hide away from everyone.

Life is good and life is bad,

we take it any way we can.

The best days taste the sweetest

and mostly I live for those.

Days when love fills the heart,

nothing else seems to matter.

I can while away the hours,

dreaming sweet dreams of you.
