FACES IN THE WATER

                                                                                      
            FACES IN THE WATER


 By myself as I am sitting beneath the warm, 
 Rising sun,

 There exists a slight, cool, morning breeze 
 Around me.

 Watch I do as the tall, dancing, trees stand 
 High above,

 Rays from the sun, shine through the branches 
 Of leaves.

 What surrounds me this day is taken for granted 
 Beauty,

 The quiet is an always wanted gift that will never 
 Go away.

 The calm pond water rests around me while I think 
 And dream,

 When I look down to find my reflection, I see not me 
 But that of other days.

 My thoughts take me to yesterday, far, far, away, 
 As if it were today,

 The water is quite still now, like clear, shiny, 
 Glass, I drift off like a dream.


 Faces in the water, clearly I can see with memories, 
 Faces in the water,

 Days of old, friends scattered with time are seen 
 Floating in the sun.
                            Keith Garrett
