A day at a time…
One day at a time, day after day
One step in front of the other, come what may.
Paycheck after paycheck, for bill after bill
same old, same old – haven’t saved enough still.
Another decade gone, how time flies by
“Mirror, mirror” – can’t look myself in the eye
month after month, year after year
what have I accomplished? I ask in fear.
Sometimes promotion, one step forward
then challenges, two steps backward.
Through it all I’m grateful – it could have been worse
Some of those challenges turned into a good cause.
We eat, we sleep – some can barely stand on their feet
Some with good backgrounds, but left homeless on the street.
We wake up each day, while some sadly pass away.
One day at a time. I’ll make the most of each day.
