O TO BE A SEA GULL









   O, To Be a Sea Gull



O, to be a sea gull
To sail the whispering sea
To catch the sun when day is done
And never need the tree.


O, to be a sea gull
With nothing more to do
Than watch for food and catch it
And bathe within the blue.


O, to be a sea gull
With freedom in my soul
Feathers ruffled with the wind
And days made out of gold.


O, to be a sea gull
Not tethered to the earth
To know your purpose in this world
Between your death and birth.


O, to be a sea gull
A common bird for sure
But special in my eyes so that
That bird, I wish I were.
