I sit and wonder as I close my eyes
Why do we sleep only to rise
I dress and wash and brush my teeth
This never ending cycle, on repeat

Do we exist or is this a dream
The years have passed with little in between
I work and toil as life goes by
My family has left, no time to die

I look to the future with hope in my heart
My dreams unwavering, travelling at heart
So much to see, so much to do
I must plan my journey with plenty to do

I will visit the oceans, swim with the dolphins
Traval to different countries, experience the cultures
From the Pyramids to the Colosseum, my experiences will broaden
So this is the future my heart is golden
