i want to stay in the land of sun,
the land with no rain,
where it is all fun and games,
laughter and child’s play.
i want to stay in the land of smiles,
where our feet can walk miles
and never feel tired,
with boundless energy like the Nile.
i want to stay in the land of no worries,
where finance and taxes are a thing of the future,
and the only problems are petty arguments
and the threat of no meals.
i want to stay in the land of dreams,
where i can close my eyes and imagine
a world filled with rainbows and sparkles
with blue skies and tropical suns.
i want to stay in the land of my childhood,
where everything was so much easier,
and my smiles and laughs came at the drop of a beat,
and my shoulders were loose and relaxed,
and my imagination took me to the clouds
and the world was black and white,
instead of drowning in shades of grey.
