Oh How I Love
Oh How I Love
Oh how I love this big beautiful place
It’s great open fields, the places, the space
Big and small buildings
Each filled with different galore
Each store I go shopping making me want even more
I lie on green grass
And wiggle my toes
Looking up, I sigh at the endless, enormous blue sky
With passing puffy clouds, a bird, then a fly
I can see shapes in those clouds, my imagination flies free
While humming, a song set in my mind
A busy bee, a barking dog, a ribbiting frog, add harmony like their singing along
My mind starts to wonder
To ponder and think
Of things that make me giggle, want to sing, dance, and start to soar
A great song, a good book, a funny text, is a start
Cake, yes cake, with creamy frosting is a yum…
Adding chocolate milk, a cold soda, hot tea with lemon
A crunchy salad with tomatoes, oh I could go on
A loving nudge from my cat, the welcome of my dog, a warm blanket and the crack of a burning log
Then I get hit with the idea of my most treasured gift
The one that fills me with warmth, glory, it makes me a real story
It’s you! Yes, you….
So many, yet a few
You bring me smiles, fill my heart, make each day all the best
Make caring and sharing and life like being a guest every day at Disneyland, a zillion dollars, a shiny new car, you know the rest!
We are all so different, our likes and some beliefs
But the love makes us similar
Makes us connect, makes us link
Makes YOU all so much dearer
You, thank you for stepping into my heart
That is, most definitely, the very best part!
