Today I sat all alone by the beach,
And peered through the swaying trees.
I stared at the ships which were out of my reach,
As they sailed on the tranquil seas.
I once dreamt I'd be on a ship far away,
Sailing to a distant land.
But I'm happy here on this island today
With my feet firmly dug in the sand.
I feel so at peace with myself and my life,
So content with the little I've got.
Twenty five years ago when I became a wife,
I knew I had the best of the lot.
So as I sit here, looking out to sea,
Thanking my lucky stars above.
I'm happy with all that I've turned out to be.
Here in my world filled with love.
