If Today Were a Song

     If Today Were a Song

Woke up ten past ten…..exact time I was born  

Day punctured my skin,

Be it a rose, I’ve found the thorn

Lazy lids are lifted, day disguised as a gift

Sun beckons my shadow

Back to sleep, I start to drift

( Chorus)

If I give into slumber, the earth may swallow me  

If I give into slumber I might feel my mind is free  

 

I awaken naked, cold and alone

Heavy feet find the floor

Breathe deep, filled and ready,

If feel this day may warm the bone

 

I’ll always question the tune of hope

Today’s glint of life’s musical score

When I shake my head to reason,

The pain of love is something more

(Chorus)

If I give into slumber, the earth may swallow me  

If I give into slumber, I might feel my mind is free  

 

 

Somehow today is different

Than it was before

You must have known it’s you I’d miss

But in my dream you shut the door

(Chorus)

If I give into slumber, the earth may swallow me 

If I give into slumber, I might feel my mind is free 

 

Back to sleep, I nearly escape me

Escape today, and your last kiss

Still in your absence

I can’t argue, this day is a gift
