Birds were not chirping when my day began

For I longed to talk to the person that makes me whole

How can I smile when oceans separate us

All I felt was sadness.


Perhaps it was the hugs from my students

Or seeing a blue sky while the warmth from the sun touched my skin

My sadness was replaced with laughter and smiles

My heart began to heal.


Sadness was replaced with excitement as I left to meet a friend

Restaurant Week arrived at the time I needed most

An amazing view with delicious food along with great conversation

Made my blue fade into the horizon.
