Each day to seize

Loving the Keys

Beneath palm trees

Doing what we please

Pleasant warm breeze

Stresses to ease

Sunsets over seas

Each day to seize

Thinking of you

Beloved Angel son

In the shade, beneath the palms

An ibis came by

We had the pool to ourselves

And then we watched the sunset

A few more clouds

But beautiful colours

So very peaceful

Here I am relaxing

Here I am relaxing

Beneath the swaying palms

Just thinking and wishing

That you were in my arms

How splendid that would be

A simple life, no qualms

To see that smile again

So filled with special charms

Happy with your memories

Now anxiety calms

Thinking of you

A stop along the way from Orlando…. Lauderdale by the Sea

A colourful street leading to the beach

A pretty plaza

A little breezy, but the beach was beautiful

And we had a beer.. We’re glad you’re here

A few dark clouds, but the sun shone on us

So good
