Day by Day

 

Taking life day by day,

have been for a while, now.

How high am I today?

The world is fifty miles down.

Trying to get back there,

or try to keep moving on,

but time is different here,

and life isn’t very long.

 

Looking at

everything that

I’ve ever loved.

Feeling this

emptiness

around me

and above.

So much space between

creation and decay,

take this life

day by day.

 

When I get back there,

will I taste the air?

Will it all come back?

Will I understand at last,

what makes the world

so perfect a place?

Will I spend my time

in moments

and not waste it?

 

Taking it day by day.
