"Just this Day"

J U S T   T H I S   D A Y , , ,

Just this day, I will awaken with a smile on my face,
And a Spring in my Step
Just this day, I will greet all I meet
With Love in my Soul, A Song in my Heart
Just this day, I will see beyond anger
To The Cry for Help
Just This Day, I will live in the moment
And forget the conditioning of the past
Just this Day, I will Listen to the Voice of God
In ALL the world that surrounds me
JUST THIS DAY,,,    JUST THIS DAY
Just this day, I will Laugh in joy
At the Silliness of a Child,
Just this day, I will remember
I am a Child, Myself
Just this Day, I will Thank God for the Pressure
That surrounds me, that I am able to know and to stand
Just this day, I will take a deep breath,
And go on, knowing that there are those who cannot
Just this day, I will take the extra step, the extra moment
To help another find the satisfaction of their need
JUST THIS DAY,,,   JUST THIS DAY
Just this day, I will see the Beauty in another,
And go as deep as I feel I need go
Just this day, I will know that I need go no further
Than my own self
Just this day, I will respond to adversity
With Laughter, and Love,,,
Just this day, Will I leave anger and hatred aside
And live the Love Within me
Just this day, I will LISTEN to the Voice of Love
Within me, and do the Beauty It bids me do
JUST THIS DAY,,,   JUST THIS DAY
Just this day, I will Learn something New
And carry the knowledge on to tomorrow
Just this day, I will reflect upon the Lessons I learned
And carry them through to Tomorrow,,,
Just this day, I will tell someone, I LOVE YOU
Just to see the smile in their eyes
Just this day, I will kiss away the tears of pain
From a child, of any age,,,
Just This Day, I will Praise My God for all the Lessons
He has Taught me
JUST THIS DAY,,,   JUST THIS DAY
Just This Day, I will Stop my scurrying
And tell someone, Thank You, for just being YOU
Just This Day, I will Shock the socks off someone
With a random act of senseless kindness
Just This day, I will use the Traffic slow-down as
An excuse to pause, and relax –  Dinner will wait
Just this day, I will realize it really wasn’t
So very hard after all, , ,
And Tomorrow, I will awaken as I did
JUST THIS DAY, , ,    JUST THIS DAY
