One Day

Why do promising days first sprawl before my eyes

so full of early promise, then fail to materialize

where have I gone wrong, did I somehow forget the words of the song

how can I get back to the start,

and try again to stem my bleeding heart

Can someone tell me please did I pick up a disease

to put me so ill at ease

Could it be this new ‘morrow when I can dance away my sorrow?

yes I feel the hope gaining strength as the dawn blazes

with the sudden onset of a sneeze

and again happy I dance with the breeze
