Achieve
 
When I open my window
  and look outside,
I see green trees
  in which birds hide.
I watch a balloon
  race to its height,
with a scattering of people
  watching its flight.
The sun shines bright
  with its rays warning the earth,
while we're watching and waiting
  for a new day's birth.
The splendour and beauty
  of this wonderful sight,
gives my heart pleasure
  and a sense of delight...
When I'm looking at this
  I find it hard to believe,
that there is anything on earth
  that I couldn't achieve...

I Sit and Watch
 
The wind is blowing
my dreams away,
I try to catch them
by the light of day..
But the night air comes
with a stronger wind,
to take them to places,
I've never been..
I search high and low
as time goes past,
I try to hurry but
they are fading fast.
My eyes cloud over
and I start to cry,
as I sit and watch
the world go by..
