Tropical Paradise

By:Ashlee Zlotnick

Sitting on the beach so hot.

Drinking out of a coconut pot.

Life could not get any better.

In and out of the ocean, my costume gets wetter and wetter.


When the sun reaches the middle of the sky.

It gets way too hot, oh my.

We move underneath the banana tree.

Life’s great, don’t you wish you were me?


The wind blows just right in the air.

My friend gave me a little dare.

The music man I would have to ask out.

So I put on my cute little pout.


5 years later, he asked for my hand.

This is somethingΒ I never planned.

What else could I say except for yes.

The end of this story…can be your guess.
