If Just For Today

 

IF JUST FOR TODAY

I see you looking my way but
our eyes never meet
I’m trying to find meaning through
your telephone screen
Ahh-haa
What happened to our empathy?
Ahh-hmm
Are all sympathies lost on me?

Oh, God
Why am I treated this way?
Dear God
You hear, what I have to say!
Ahh-haa
Now I’m on my knees to pray
Ahh-hmm
God-if-it’s-just-for-today
Ahh-haa
God if it’s just for today

It’s like nobody can see me
the way I exist
And my mother never told me
I’d have days like this
Ahh-haa
Let’s hear it for mental illness
Ahh-haa
No I am not, just sensitive.

Oh, God
Why am I treated this way?
Dear God
You hear, what I have to say!
Ahh-haa
Now I’m on my knees to pray
Ahh-hmm
God-if-it’s-just-for-today
Ahh-haa
God if it’s just for today

Always sitting in the shadows
just off to the side
Trade you all my tomorrow’s here
for some of your time
Ahh-haa
Can’t take these long and lonely days
Ahh-hmm
God save me if just for today

Oh, God
Why am I treated this way?
Dear God
You hear, what I have to say!
Ahh-haa
Now I’m on my knees to pray
Ahh-hmm
For His Mercy and His Grace
Ahh-haa
Now I’m on my knees to pray
Ahh-hmm
For the day the Lord has made
Ahh-hmm

God if it’s just for today

  1. I enjoyed thus one a lot. Just curious do you write them and post the same day? Did you just write these?

    1. Hi C.C.
      I am so happy that you took the time to read and even more so that you enjoyed it! Thank You so much! So about posting/writing…Some poems I’ll end up spending months in between start and completion, I don’t always share those ones. Others like this one here, just come really fast without much effort in thought on my part. When that happens I usually just spellcheck and post it. I L-O-V-E those moments and try to create time to get it on paper in that moment because it usually don’t resurface again so clear like other thoughts. This one came through like a song with it’s own rhythm. So I have made a habit of recording it out loud as fast I can to that rhythm. That way I can reference back to hear the flow on certain syllables when needed. Hope that answered your question.
      Cheers!
