Touching base

Time to open eyes,
some surprise.
Stare out to the day
wish it would
fade away.
What a night it was,
can’t remember when
I enjoyed a night so much
must do it again.
stare out to the day.
Who’s the girl I saw?
she wore a frown,
a wedding gown?
and the guy with her,
what’s his name?
he didn’t care.
Time to open eyes
close out all the lies
pick myself a shady place
underneath the pale blue skies
and stare out to the day.
