Best ever place
On earth to be.
So much fun
To walk all
Over the city.
Nearly everything is

Made for walking distance.
A wonderful amount of
Special places to go,
Sights to see,
And people to meet.
Close ties I
Have with this place.
Understand, it is where I was born.
So much history
Etched into every brick of
The roads and buildings.
Take a walk around. You'll
See what I mean.

We've Arrived!

We've Arrived!
We've Arrived!
At last we have arrived!
Pats on the back
And happy high-fives!

We sure
A lot in our little car,
Driving all day
And way
Into the dark.

But cheer!
We're here!
Now at last,
First we'll unpack,
then maybe...

On a Road-trip

I'm in a car, going fast!
Outside the scenery rushes past.
On a road-trip, going far.
Highway signs and other cars.

With windows down, the breeze is strong.
The stereo plays a funky song.
Bopping my head to the beat,
I wonder when we'll stop to eat.

I'd like to take a break and stretch,
But I won't complain, and I won't *kvetch.
I love road-trips, in fact I'll bet
You won't hear me say "Are we there yet?"

So sitting in the backseat, notebook in lap
I'll close my eyes and take a nap.

*Kvetch is a Yiddish word that means complain or make a fuss.
Also, the picture is almost exactly what our car actually looks like. ^_^

Knowing you

Knowing you has been a pleasure
Your friendship I will always treasure
Knowing you has given me lots
of cool ideas and great new thoughts
Knowing you has been a ride
I'm glad to have you by my side
Knowing you, I've changed so much
The sky feels close enough to touch
Knowing you has turned my world
Upside-down and flipped and twirled
Knowing you, I've read many a book
I probably wouldn't have given a look
Knowing you, my days are brighter
And I've become a better writer (I hope!)
Knowing you, I feel so free
My words come out like poetry
Knowing you are my best friend
Is something I hope never ends
Knowing you is like sunshine
You're unique, silly, one-of-a-kind
Knowing you, I'd like to say,
"I wouldn't have it any other way"

(I don't need to say it, but even so
Some things are simply good to know. ^_~)

Knowing you, you're smiling now
And so for you, I'll take a bow

In & Out

Sometimes I wish I could be very small.
A fly on the wall,
Not seen at all.
Invisible, I'd watch time go by.
Peaceful nothings, dreams and sighs.
Sometimes I wish I were big as can be!
For everyone to see
The spotlight on me!
I'd rule the world, have tons of friends!
Adventure, excitement, the fun never ends!
These 2 opposite parts of me
Make up my personality.
Sometimes I look in,
Sometimes I look out...

Maybe that's what life is all about
