    A Place I Yearn For Now...

    I'm wishing to be in a place... That is sunny...yet cold,perhaps an autumn noon... By the harbor... Sitting on a bench there... With the salty wind whipping at my face... As I pull my muffler higher to cover my cold pink cheeks... I will be watching the day go by slowly...but...
