… and I think, I’m confused.
So far, I’ve spent all my days
Was that a mistake?
Is there a problem?
Have I overstayed my welcome?
Perhaps Earth had enough of me.
Should I pack my bag?
… can I just say:
I like it here.
The seas, the mountains,
and all the boring flat bits in between.
Winds and waves,
sunshine and showers.
I even like the Scottish weather,
go figure that out, if you can!
… I guess, I could show
my appreciation and gratitude,
sing Earth’s song a little louder,
thank the skies for all their surprises.
Maybe that will extend my visa…
