Imperfect Paradise

The crystalline gems populate the sand.
That feeling, that warmth, embraces your feet.
Leaves of the tropics sway way out of hand.
An area where seagulls will soon meet.
Beholding one’s eyes, tis a sea of blue.
Cascading waves, it is such a pleasure.
This setting of mine, you haven’t a clue.
A setting so calm, tis without measure.
Yet this heaven of mine, is not complete.
Is something missing? Why of course, tis thee.
The comfort of friends, is indeed a feat.
A feeling unmatched, as true eyes can see.

Friendship be the path to true contentment.

With it, ones life, it has no resentment.
