This Time Next Year


This time next year

In a purposeless tracksuit

Working out my problems

In a redundant tracksuit

Yoga pants that don’t stretch

Uncomfortable sterile white trainers

thinking life was so much better last year.


This time next year

I’m back in between the sand, the sea, the desert and the Burj

catching up in laughter about all that I have missed over the last few years

with a twinkle in my eye, and a ring on my finger, I can’t stop smiling.


This time next year

thundering waterfalls, tropical rainforests

I can taste this history

I can hear the beauty surrounding

jostling cities, lost in the crowd, lost in translation

colour, travel dust, endless coastlines, ancient sites, lost cities

this is exactly what I needed



This time next year

I have a cup of coffee in my hand

I see the smalltalk from my balcony

But there is something missing.

There’s always something missing

laughter tickles

I need to take them home and get to work



This time next year

I’ll enjoy this moment

right here
