The Island

The grass is greener

and the birds are louder,

on my island of dreams

you’re at my side, with a piña colada.

The sun is brighter

and the breeze is nicer,

on my island of dreams

I can hold you tighter.

The sand is softer

and the food is sweeter,

on my island of dreams

there is only forever.

The clouds are whiter

and the place is tidier,

on my island of dreams

my inner self is lighter.

The journey has been longer

yet, I have grown stronger,

my island of dreams…

is on the border.

Alexandra Smith, 25, Derbyshire
