Freedom

 

Freedom is a walk in the warmth of the sun,

A fridge well stocked and dinner that’s already done.

Freedom is some time with nothing to do,

But have coffee or chai in the evening with you.

Freedom is the right to express my opinion,

That’s tied to a duty to have respect for your feelings.

Freedom is the quiet that sings through the noise,

And the happiness I feel when I hear your voice.

Freedom is the idea that we can both be different,

And yet live together – a happy and peaceful family unit.

Freedom is a right that comes with a duty,

To listen, acknowledge and have regard for your opinion.

Freedom is a walk in the warmth of the sun,

A fridge well stocked and dinner that’s already done.

Freedom is an evening with nothing to do,

But play the piano and wait for you.


To Michael.

Celebrating 20 years of marriage, caring and freedom. Because the right to free speech starts at home.
