No One Should Be Sad - Poem by Carl Johnson

When ever life's too much for me,
I stop and think a while.
I dream of floating of to sea,
This always makes me smile.

Far away from all my fears,
My mind is free at last.
No more upsets, No more tears,
A future with no past.

My boat it shifts through waters calm,
With sails all puffed up wide.
I feel relaxed and far from harm,
As my boat so smoothly glides.

I stand up front with Oceans bare,
By this I mean no land.
No soul in sight to make a pair,
My boat is just one manned.

So on I go, Alone I thought,
Until I looked aside.
I was surprised what Nature brought,
Two dolphins at my side.

By now I’m truly far away,
In mind and distance too.
The dolphins lead me far astray,
They also could take you.

We reached a place far out to sea,
That looked like heavens door.
For all around my boat and me,
Where dolphins more and more.

They swim around these waters blue,
They sometimes jump up high.
You could see these visions too,
When things are hard Just Try.

I have these dreams Most of the time,
As life too much for me.
They take me away from all the grime,
Just try it and you'll see.
