All My Todays
Fragile Yet Free
Sometimes in life we face a battle that is hard to fight, but we have to try. Strength comes from deep inside, and from the generosity of our friends. Keep your friends safe and close to your heart, you will never know when you will need them.
Today, the magic that once was, has left a bitter taste
I feel so stupid now, and glance downcast from your face
Gentle words once comforted me, spoken from your heart
Instead I am riding a bitter storm, torment in my eyes, depart
“What can be done is all I ask” I don’t want pity anymore
I love the strength the daylight brings, my fretful dreams I ignore
Life is just a challenge, a roller coaster of waves
Kindness is not the answer that I crave for all my days
You left me so abruptly, my heart left shattered in stone
Yet the precision of your letter placed, hasn’t left me alone
For each time I hold that crumpled page, stained from time and tears
I can hear angels’ wings so soft, so gentle to restrain my fears
Although my life is in turmoil and I admire all your finesse
My love will be my legacy left pounding on your chest
I am now without fight, I have thrown in the towel
I cannot force the issue, the gladiator won, hands down
