Have you ever felt the breeze
Of the mountain wind on your skin?
Musing sweet and soft tunes
Like playing an endless violin.
Have you ever felt the sand
As it crumbles beneath your bare feet?
The tingles that it gives your sole
Would never make you want to retreat.
Have you ever felt the water
As you drift the sea in a boat?
The cold moist that runs up your arm
Like passing on a secret note.
Have you ever slept in narrow tents
In beautiful open lands?
Where having the universe as your ceiling
Will make you feel that life is grand.
Have you ever gone on an adventure
Where you got lost on your way?
Where all the mishaps that happened
Now just make you smile each day.
Have you ever tried to do
Things that make you scared?
Where even your bravest face would run
If you arrived knowing you’re not prepared.
Have you ever heard the sound of nature
As it wakes you up in the morning?
The chirps of birds and the rustling of trees
Is like an alarm without a warning.
Have you ever met beautiful people
Who don’t even know you at all?
But would give a smile and treat you well
Like you’re a friend that they can call.
Have you ever witnessed a sunset
In its most magnificent purple, orange and red?
Like a fire lying in the wide sky
With the whole universe as its bed.
Have you ever seen a new place
As absolutely breathtaking as this?
Where all your troubles will feel so far,
Not one worry you would ever miss.
Have you ever felt as happy as this,
As alive, as blissful, as free?
That no matter what happened before
Your heart still couldn’t stop dancing with glee.
