Have You Ever?
Have you ever seen it rain in Sydney
after a hot summer’s day at the beach,
when the dark clouds roll in from the ocean
so low they’re almost in reach?
Have you ever seen it snow in New York
and build up white on the streets,
when the air is so cold you could cut it
and your breath falls from your mouth in sheets?
Have you ever seen a sunset in Thailand
over the warm waters of the Bay of Bengal
while local kids try to sell you all sorts of things
you’d have no use for at all?
Have you ever woken up in a strange bed,
held safe in a stranger’s embrace,
and when you shake off the dream you just left,
you only see your true love’s face?
