There is a place that I wish I could go,
That's quiet, peaceful, and calm.
You can always smell the salt from the sea,
And it's so sunny you must put on lip balm.
I wish I could get away from the chaos of life,
And relax beside an ocean of blue.
A chance to get away from this strife,
And see the sunset in its beautiful hue.
I wish I could throw away every burden,
And not think about the problems of this world.
Instead, I would float on the water
When I watched the water as it swirled.
I know I can find this perfect place,
When I go through the gates to see God's face.
