SS - Just a Little Boy

People don’t stop
On their way to tomorrow
Blind to patterns in the pavement
And how trees sing with a passing breeze.
They’re all so caught up
in cell phones, meetings, mediocrity.
Barely recognizing 
the smell of good coffee.
But I want to pause...
Tomorrow can wait a while.
I want to watch the birds fly
Give a stranger a smile.
So follow me, darling
And I’ll take you where I want to go
Where the sun always shines
And people don’t know
The tremours of stress
Keeping them up at night
Follow me, maybe
If you’re not afraid to find
The thing you’ve looked for
all your life.
