My Retreat

You’re my favorite retreat,
my secret getaway.

You’re that place
just beyond the crowded streets
in that little secluded alleyway
where clothes dry on the balconies
and the children’s laughter is an echo
between brick apartments.

You’re that stretch of ocean
away from frolicking families
and affectionate couples
where the sand is soft
and the waves are silent.

You’re that scenic highway
off the beaten path
with the best views of
the entire cityscape
overlooking flickering streetlights
and distant voices.

You’re my favorite retreat,
my secret getaway…
my escape from this world,
my home away from home.
