Despite It All
Got up this morning and went to work.
Another day after remembering.
Dwelling on the pain of what was left me.
On my way to work, I saw the sun come up.
And the mist rising from the water.
And the deer surprised by my car.
And the children laughing, waiting for the bus.
Got to work and smiled at my colleagues.
And worked with my students.
And helped them with their problems.
And talked to my friends.
Left work tired. Drove home at night.
And saw the moon over the trees.
And smelled the fresh air.
And felt the coolness of fall.
And watched the branches move in the breeze.
So today, despite it all,
It was a very good day!
Enjoy them when they happen. There will be more of them!
Peace and love,
