The grace of my city,
Is unending.
From the giggling of children on bicycles in my complex,
To the tranquil suburban sidewalks fit ideally for afternoon strolls.
We don’t have many sky scraping buildings,
Massive malls,
Or buildings painted with hundreds of LED lights.
Then what makes this city so charming?
It’s all the late night Krispy Kreme runs with my family,
Of course with a long drive to thoroughly end the night,
And the walks around the peacefully picturesque neighbourhoods.
The evening strolls at Fleetwood Park,
And the family badminton tournaments outside our garage,
Under the scorching hot sun.
The glamor lies,
In the summer jogs around Bear Creek Park’s track,
And drinking Jugo Juice whenever we’d visit Guildford Mall.
There’s so much more to love about the city,
More than just the bright glare of the lights and the lofty buildings,
But all the little things that make it home,
All the beautiful things,
That bind my heart to this place,
So firmly.
But even though I live Surrey,
I’ll never side with a Surrey Jack.
All the love I have for my city,
Is endless.
