I wish I could just lie in a field of flowers

Lay awake watching the beautiful blue skies

I wish I could be still for just a few hours

In a garden so stunning you won’t believe your eyes

If only I lay in a bed of flowers;

Watch as the sun sets in a mixture of blue and gold

If I could only spend the day there and waste away the hours

To lay there and rest until the air turns cold

I would give anything to lay amongst the flowers 

To lay in wait until my problems unfold

I’d give anything to forget my troubles for a few hours

Being encompassed by nature- what a sight to behold.

If it ever occurred, the chance to lay among the flowers

I would seize it and be still; as minutes turned to hours
