Peppermint Tea

As I sit and sip

my peppermint tea

I remember the times

that you laughed with me

I ponder the future

and relive the past

I savor the present

for it never lasts

I’m lost in the moment

and I don’t really care

For though time is fleeting

I have plenty to spare

Right now I’m content,

to just sit and drink

It’s nice to relax

and let my brain think

I’ll sit on my bed

and look out at the rain

It cleanses my soul

and heals all my pain

When all my tea’s gone,

I’ll start living again

But I don’t want to think

about life until then

I’m sick of the world

and all of its worry

Can’t life take it slow?

I’m in no real hurry

One thing I’ve learned

is to let some things be

So I’ll sit and I’ll sip

my peppermint tea.
