Physically, I am here. Mentally, I am far, far away. I cannot help my mind from going astray. It travels long distances and short. To places of all sort. It takes me to my classroom. A place where young minds bloom. It takes me to my favorite place to dine. Sharing laughter and a glass of wine. It takes me on Sunday strolls. Surrounded by many happy souls. It travels to my homeland. I smell the sea and touch the sand. It travels to a place where I find my peace. Where all of my troubles cease. It travels deep within my heart. Always a good place to start. To understand why physically I am here, but mentally I am far, far away. And cannot help my mind from going astray.
