where were you?
what did you do today?
the dead no longer
press their faces
against the window
lost in yesterdays sorrow
they have gone to sleep
sweet dreams on being free
someday I will join them
it will not be today
this day I will search
for old friends and lovers
hiding somewhere deep
in the basements and lofts
of past memories and dreams
who's to know what's real
who's to care
as long as you and I win
once before the end

Today I was in prison teaching a writing class
Today I heard a story that broke my heart
Then pieced it back together again with hope
Today I missed my husband who passed away
His memory lives on in my heart and soul
His smell brings me back to sweetest memories
His face brings joy to my heart
Today I listened to a friend
Who needed to vent
Today I smiled at the sunshine as I shivered in the cold
Today I will sing my own song.
