By The Lake - Poem by Jasjiv Singh

this place now is so serene
the sense of self can be felt not seen
contentment with every breath i take
never knew this could exist by a lake

i see people go past by me
wondering who could i possibly be
the only one who has time to sit
not walk not even for a bit

for me watching, than to run,
the family who races for fun
three kids trying to outrun each other
one little girl and two of her brothers

the father who oversees every race
welcomes every result with a smiling face
nobody in his eyes ever loses
with warmth n kindness his heart oozes
