The sand on the shore 
Like a thin line of tan in the distance.  
The tiny little sailboat 
Like a white dot in a sea of deep blue.  
The incredibly beautiful women all around.  
It makes me feel a little like Luke Bryan. 
I got the best view in the world.  


Spendin’ my days, 
Catchin’ these rays, 
Watchin’ coconut cover girls.


Sittin’ here in Suntan City,
With a cold one in my hand.

Little island out at sea.  
You remind me of someone that I think very highly of.  
You’re strong and independent.  
You weather every storm as if it’s nothing.  
Even when others doubt you, 
you still remain, unwavering.  

This person I know, is all of those things and more.  
They continue to amaze me every day that I see them.  
Weathering the storm of life as if its nothing 
and keeps going.  
I’ve never been more proud 
to know any single human being.

Dirty oil pump out,
Quirky old man:
What a combination.
They go together like 
Claire and a five-year-old mindset.
