My Happy Place

Sshh
Deep breath
Eyes closed
Waves lapping on the shore
Warm sun on my face
Giggles from treasures playing in the sand

Sshh
Deep breath
Eyes closed
Dewy ground under feet
Meadows of wild flowers swaying in the breeze
Tinkling of treasures running in the woods

Sshh
Deep breath
Eyes closed
Flashing lights in a spin
Candy floss, hot dogs and fast rides
Screams of treasures filled with sugar and treats

Sshh
Deep breath
Eyes closed
Alarms waking us from slumber
School shoes, changing bags and car keys
Tired sighs of treasures ready for the day

Sshh
Deep breath
Eyes closed
Through the fog and darkness
Chaos of the everyday
Tight squeezes from my treasures reminding me they’re my happy place

  1. I love how you take us through the joy of the holidays to going back to the school run and remind us that the joy is still there in our minds. We just have to remember those moments.
