Some are just normal Mondays.
Then there are those that come up
And slap you in the heart
In the best and worst possible ways
They start out simply enough,
But sneak right up on you.
If you’re a “put love & fun out there”
Kind of person
It’s not always coming back at you
And that’s okay
It’s kind of the point, in fact
But on a day when you have
An expensive surprise car repair
And way too many other things to do
And the kind of evening
When you NEED chorus practice
Most weeks you like it a lot
Often you love it
But this week you NEED it.
And you remember that earlier today
Two of your beloved ones
Did you such favors,
Showed you such kindnesses,
Without a thought.
You walk your dogs in the darkness,
And see a setting crescent moon.
Then you get home and in the mail
Is something so incredibly dear.
And it gets you right there
Like in a bull’s-eye.
And you cry like a fussy,
And it feels really really good.
Then drift off to sweet dreams,
To wake up and start it all again
