You walk, you stroll, you love, you grow
How the city effects you, you never know
Meeting people and making friends
A new adventure around each bend
A place for old and new love too
Seeing couples holding hands, its true
The city of love, a city of passion
Where to next, only you can fashion
Sitting by a fountain, resting on the stairs
With this city I am having an affair
Love some parts, also hate others
Its a city of artists, its a wonder!
So much inspiration in one place
A new day and adventure, its the way
With inspiration and love in the air
Each moment you will cherish and care
I wrote this during a trip to Italy in 2012 and found it written on a scrap of paper.
It is true that when you have free time, you make room for creativity.
The sing song Italian words I hear
Motorbike sputtering, the city sounds near
Behind, in front and to the side
In Rome there is no quiet to find
The air is warm and humid too
With all the sun, you can't feel blue
A moment of peace is in your heart
That is where peace starts
A place of calm, a place of home
Where else can you be alone?
A great big city with people everywhere
As you stroll through winding streets without a care
Sitting on the sidewalk drinking espresso
How can I move from here? To get up and go?
I don't want to leave but I know I must
At some point, espresso runs out, what a fuss!
Tourists walk by I can hear them laugh
I don't feel much like them at all, too bad
And so I finish my Roma cappacino
At last its time to leave, here I go.
