"Love, just for today"
Love's not lost, only unaccounted for.
So many days we spent together, but somewhat adrift.
We've joined with each other, and God gave us this gift,
a son to enjoy, to teach, and live life with.
Many years we've spent with our sights set on him,
only to realize we've forgotten ourselves.
Today is a day where we focus less on within.
We pull our love from the shelves,
and the re-gifting begins.
We now rely more upon God than ourselves.
He is our focus but he,
our son, is more in perspective.
For if we don't have each other at our best,
he will suffer the almost certain unrest
that leads to much, too much distress.
Today we love, we do, we share.
Today we talk more, walls that divide, beware.
Today we set goals, and post them to see.
Now we're headed somewhere
we both hope to be.
This love of ours is changing for the better.
God's guidance leads us to much clearer weather.
Now he smiles more and frowns less
because we're not under duress,
like overworked leather.
We're coming full circle a day at a time.
My prayer for today seeks only sublime
moments together with him and alone.
We have only this life to give each one another,
and with his mother, my wife
I offer myself to Him, and him and no other.
So, I thank you God
for showing us the way
to a happier life
just for today.
