I woke up this morning and found myself lost.
Miles from what was familiar, hours from what I sought.
Shadows crept up beside me.
They whispered in my ear.
"Follow the sunlight as far as it guides you.
It cannot lead you stray."
And lead I was to water.
But never to take drink.
By my own name, I'm a drinker.
It's by your assignment that I'm a drunk.
A lush is my designation.
Luscious is my life.
As I've listened to the shadows.
They seemed to offer sound advice.
For as long as only the sun guides me.
I'll always have its lights.
