Living for Today

My heart left in yesterday
My mind set on tomorrow
Living for today
Stuck like glue & cemented in blue
I want to stop caring at all
Be a spot on the wall
not noticed until it becomes a stain
of unrealized pain
remembering all those nightmares again
My heart left in yesterday
My mind set on tomorrow
Living for today
Let love come back to stay
By keeping my thoughts above the fray
not for yesterdays or tomorrows
nor dreams or sorrows
Red will out shine gray
Stay still and pray
one day
Until then, I will be
Living for today
