If I Could Have Just One Day
One Day Please???????
Can there ever be relief from the pain I feel of late?
Why do I have to always have some thing wrong?
Why can’t my equilibrium be steady,
My fibromyalgia under control,
My hearing be somewhat decent
Just for one day?
Just for one day of the freedom of
No pain, no falling, no running into objects,
Being able to hear when someone talks to me,
Not feeling like my head wants to “pop” over my left eye.
It would be so nice, just for one day.
Just for one day, my legs wouldn’t hurt,
Nor would my shoulders
I could even write in no pain.
I wouldn’t feel like my neck has been sprayed
With liquid nitrogen and it’s so stiff
Waiting for that big snap—
Just for one day.
Now I am older, and menopause has set in
Irritability and stress are constant friends.
The headaches are more frequent and intense
All of it leaves me in a state of suspense
What else in store for me does lay,
When all I want is just one day.
If I could have just one day, what would it cost me?
Would it be a price I was willing to pay?
Is my suffering going to be used to help someone else?
Even if all is the case, I would still like to have,
Just one more day.
