I’m Here Today

I’m here today. There I will be tomorrow
Staring at a thousand different papers,
A thousand different movies, every song.
I’m here today. I can’t dwell on what’s gone wrong.

I’m scared today. Oh, how your yesterday
Can change your present in so many ways.
So much that I need to do right now.
I’m scared today. I need to do better somehow.

My heart hurts today. It beats in time.
It feels as bruised and broken as before.
But I might just pull the pieces together.
My heart hurts today. I wonder if there is a cure.

My eyes are dry today. They’ve been so for a while.
For crying is overrated and today needs to be more.
I won’t shed a tear for my past or future again.
My eyes are dry today. My will to cry is growing dim.

It’s cold outside today. But inside it’s warm
Because with everything around me, you are there.
I don’t want so much to happen, but it has and will.
It’s cold outside today. You keep me warm still.

It’s difficult today. Every day really is.
I can’t and won’t make it on my own.
Keep me strong and able to go.
It’s difficult today. You’re the only thing I know.
