If I say 

Sail away

For the day 

We could lay

On a beach with the finest of sand 

Hit a bar 

Play guitar 

Go too far 

Name a star

Dance whilst singing along to the band 

When we're done 

We could run 

To the sun 

Have some fun 

Take my heart heal my soul hold my hand 

Don't be shy 

Let's get high

Laugh and cry 

Question why

We keep trying to keep up with demand 

Up the game 

We're the same 

Call my name 

Burn the flame 

Take a chance and let's see where we land

      I really like this style of your poetry! Oh to lay in the sand and answer life's questions....."Call my name/burn the flame" Leaves wonderful imagery for the mind to play out.

                  The rhyming pattern of this poem adds such an element of fun as read aloud. Sweet sentiment builds with each stanza, culminating in that beautiful "take a chance". Loved every syllable!
