is this how the day goes? / by Ellen Sorensen

is this how the day goes

all summer long? 

driving the highways while playing 

my favorite song? 


i could get used to this 

for the rest of the year

reading in my hammock 

just drinking my favorite beer


the nights are nice 

but the days are longer 

and with each passing day 

my heart gets stronger 


let's let the waves come and 

crash on this shore

and we'll pretend that time 

doesn't exist anymore
