If I Could Have Just One Day

Updated on June 17, 2017

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

No headache—

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.

      Fibromyalgia is hobbible, there's no denying that. It takes a stong person to make it through the days. Faith will help.

      There are many questions we ask ourselves and God... We look at how our body is so perfectly designed by one who created all things, God himself, he didn't leave out anything... Scientist says it's amazing how the body heals, and renew itself.... . But yet somehow the body continues to break down, they believe the body should be able to live forever...

      I wonder if every living soul, would have been perfect and endured life on earth forever if Adam and Eve had never sinned against God... I believe you will have many days... Some days much better than others... We must work with life changes.. And each day that you have... Thank God for that day.... For he knows how much you can bear...
