Taking The Blues Away


I always look forward
To my first cup of coffee
Where I dine at my favourite cafe,

There are so many things going on there
It's a great way to start the day,

When I first walk in the door
I am greeted with a smile,

I sit down at my favourite table
And relax for a short while,

The air is full of laughter
As people huddle into groups

Discussing the events of the day,

Joe sits in the corner
Sipping a lemon tea,

Reading the joke from the newspaper
To everyone he can see,

Then there is Colin
Who knows just about everything,

When he is not the centre of attention
To himself he begins to sing,

Jan and Betty sit opposite each other
Swapping their cooking recipes,

In between they talk of their children
Who are living overseas,

Steve is a truck driver
Who comes in for a skinny latte,

He tells us of his many stops
He must make throughout the day,

Carol runs the cafe
Now she is not very organized,

Every now and then
She forgets someones' order
And lets go with a deep sigh,

This is indeed the perfect way
To start my working day,

Seeing so much joy and laughter
Can take the blues away
