One day at a time


It’s a long way between here and there
The week passes slowly
It’s all I can bear
Take comfort in small things
The odd cryptic message
Jump when the bell rings

Taking things
One day at a time
I know it’s hard, the distance between us
Here and there
One day at a time
Setting things in order, making things right
Race through the day to prolong the night

All along, the longing feels like pain
Winter, her cruel talons cutting
I can’t explain
Words seem to fail me
A misplaced “I love you”
Salt tears like the sea

Still taking things
One day at a time
Measure the distance, the distance between us
Here and there
One day at a time
Setting words to music, making things right
Race through the day, savour the night

Taking things
One day at a time
Capture the moment, a moment in time
Far and away
One day at a time
No time for excuses, making things right
Cast aside darkness, make a new light

If I can make one promise at night before I fall asleep
It is to treasure your heart, these words, this love, to keep.
