Place to Be

Boats on the water.
Children in the park.
The park is on the lake front.
What a pleasant place to be.

Hear the children laughing.
Laughing loud and playing.
See the old men fishing.
This is the life for me.

Worries about this troubled life are absent from my mind.
Finding pleasure in the pleasure of others is a wonderful way to be.
Here I have found a sanctuary bringing peace of mind.
Like watching all my worries drifting out to sea.
