I Am Living

It's the laughter my friends make.

The love my family gives.

Sand between my toes.

Music pulsing through my body.

Late night drives with no destination.

Feeling the warmth of the sun on my skin.

Everyday brings so much more to look forward to.

I close my eyes and I am living.

I close my eyes and I am feeling free.

These are the things I look forward.

These are the things I live for.
