Living Life Day by Day

                            Living Life Day by Day


I tend to live life day by day,
I always have it's just my way.

Things have been rough for many years,
along the way I've shed many tears.

My life has always been an uphill battle,
it makes it hard to stay in the saddle.

My MOM and best friend passed away in 2002,
since she's been gone I'm not sure what to do.

Friends from poetry soup have gone out of their way,
if it wasn't for their help I might not be here today.

Now all I can do is live life day by day,
like I said it's just my way.


                                                              COLLEEN MARIE BONO
