Carpe Diem

Enjoy the slowly bluing sky With just a bit of clouds A morning in the making So try not to be too loud Most everyone is sleeping Or not fully yet awake Not knowing the direction That this new day might take So lets not spoil it just jet We’ll keep it a surprise At least until everyone wakes up And wipes sleep out of their eyes This could be almost any day But change is in the air Opportunity round every turn But you have to know it’s...
