Oh, to live that perfect day!
Whenever will it come my way?
In my mind
I bide my time
With visions of the ocean's spray

I walk around without a care
Drinking in the morning air
It seems so real
I almost feel
The rushing wind move through my hair

I sit and linger on the pier
The crashing waves are all I hear
I suppose
As I repose
That waking is my only fear

Again, I walk along the shore
How I love the ocean's roar!
Dare I run
In the sun?
For on this day, it's not a chore.

Sand is squishing through my toes
Ocean smells waft up my nose
I catch my breath
Oh, what depth!
Such strength and power dost though impose!

I see the sun begin to set
At once my mind begins to fret
It can't be!
Don't you see?
My perfect day's not over yet

Someone calls me to awake
Can't I have just one more take?
This may be
My last reprieve
From the life I must partake

I know that it was all a dream
But something new is beckoning
Through it all
I hear Him call
Hope and peace, His offering

A brand new life does He propose
In His great love I have arose!
I catch my breath
Oh, what depth!
Such strength and power dost though impose!

Oh, to live that perfect day!
It has finally come my way!
For this I know
I am made whole
A fact from which I cannot stray
