IF JUST FOR TODAY (edited edition)

So I wrote this poem the other day and shared it with you all as soon as it was written. It was one of those that came through the “medium” or the æther as a song. Meaning that the words already had a certain pitch and rhythm that accompanied them. So after sitting with it for a couple days, this is what I ended up with. May be audio file I will share in the future. Maybe! Hope you enjoy! Would love to hear what you think. Thanks for your support!

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
