Much Needed Rest

Take me to your island

Where I can bask in the sweet sun

Swing in the night breeze

And frolic until my work is done


Just breath easy

No expectation for the anticipation

Of conversation

In truth, I want to rest


Experience joy, peace and happiness

No hurt in my voice

No ache in my chest

An end to the shakiness of breath


Where is the curve in the rainbow

Does it wait for me?

In the midst of this craziness

Can a misunderstood soul

Discover the bedrock of tranquility?

Sleep anxious body

Lay down your nervous flesh

You’ve held on long enough

Too tired to be emotional

Too emotional to be tough


So take me to your island

Where I can bask in the sweet sun

Swing in the night breeze

And frolic until my work is done


Twist and turn on a path outlined by cleared foliage

It leads through the bush

To a shoreline that sore soles need

Play in the warm sand

Dip excited toes in refreshing water


Afterward laugh and smile

Forget my troubles for a little while

This is my day to be free

Live with comfort

Wind down with ease


The ebb and flow of palm trees is a sight to behold

They gave pause to a worried mind

And silence to a complex feeling

Their leaves shift from side to side

Yet the bark stands tall


Love always, Esha ❤
