(rough copy)

People walking by probably think I am crazy
Laying on the shore with my pants on, half naked
It's late afternoon now 
The beach is mostly deserted
I can enjoy the quiet, it is perfect

Hours go by reflecting
The story of my life I am projecting
Life has been a rollercoaster 
love, pain, laughter
All creating a colorful poster

It is night now...
No one is near
The full moon is out
I don't want to leave this place

Tonight I just want to let myself go
No demands nor appearances to maintain
Just a man feeling his soul
Hoping and aching to feel whole

The moon illuminating the night
It is nothing but a work of art
Enhancing the dreamer in me
As the stars gently parade before my eyes

Life hasn't been easy, that's for sure
There are scars which still need healing
Pain and anger I am always trying to hide
But tonight all of that matters not 
As I let the beauty of life soothe my soul

Tonight I reflect on my victories and failures
Long lost loves and those yet to come
Tonight I am enjoying the possibilities
Tonight I don't feel numb

Hope has arrived in my life
As cupid prepares his arrow, aiming at my heart
How long have I longed with crazy vehemence 
To feel something
To feel this one more time

It matters not if I lose again
At least I gave love another chance
For what could be more beautiful than love
A raw yet beautiful gift given to us by the Gods

The magick of the night excites all my senses
I can taste the air and hear the wind whispering
A mysterious tune which consoles all my sorrows
Filling me with hope for a brand new tomorrow

Fears disappear leaving behind a blank canvas
Like an artist I am free to create
This is my life and I intend for it to be great

As I immerse myself more and more within my dreams
I realize my eyelids are getting heavy 
I am drifting off to sleep

This has been a beautiful evening
Just a raw man contemplating
And a friend called life listening

As fatigue overcomes me 
I realize is time to go home
With a smile on my face
I stand free and tall
My eyes gazing at the moon 
"Let's meet again soon"
