At a Time Like This

It’s at a time like this
That I try to convince myself 
To stay positive and enthused
But its one of those days 
When I’m feeling so confused
Better if I just stay in bed
And take my time
And think of nothing instead
My thoughts like spaghetti 
that swamp my mind
Will slowly start 
To unravel and unwind
Things start to make sense
Growing in confidence 
To face the days of come what may
Leaving the doubts of yesterday 
It’s at a time like this
That the prayers and the wishes
That I’ve secretly said
Won’t be heard
They’ll just stay in my head
But the fact that I’ve said them 
Seems to help with the problem
It’s at a time like this
When I remember
That a part of my life is now over
A part of my life is now gone
Time to turn the page
Leaving behind whatever went wrong
It’s at a time like this
Though that part of my life that is over
I’m glad that now I can clearly see
Through my pain and forgiving
I can move forward and believe in
A happier future for me.
