Just for Today

Today I want to go for a ride
and visit Pam or Kate.

I want to drink lemonade
with real sugar.

I want stroll
and window-shop
while holding your hand,
as though life were simple.

I want to laugh and drive fast
and not think of consequences.

Just for today
I want to be happy.

  1. Yes, I think we all are longing for a day full of normal things, small pleasures we took for granted. I suppose the upside is that if this ever *is* over, we will never take them for granted again. I love this 55, it’s simplicity and truth. Thanks so much for helping to kick a little weekend ass, Mary.
