Pura Vida

Been waking up before the sun
To keep it company as it rises
And staying close beside it
As it hides away
Beyond the cliffs of paradise

A simple,
Beautiful
Kind of life
Where my alarm clock has come to die
And where my laugh
Seems to resonate
Louder
Brighter

A place for jumping off waterfalls
For swimming with a school of bright colored fish
For swinging in hammocks
And picking flowers to wear on my hair
For speaking my native tongue
And re-training my brain
To speak in that beautiful Latin rhythm

Here
The days are slow
The peacefulness alive
Pura Vida
Forever
This pure kind of life.
