Sweet Tea Kind of Day

Regina Puckett

This is a sipping sweet tea kind of day

And sitting here watching the kids play

I’ll listen to their laughter and cries

I’ll scold their fighting and bold-face lies

I’ll pretend for one moment I’m like them

And here in my mind I’m still a cherished gem

Until tomorrow when I have to face reality

Where life insists on rushing toward mortality
