One More Day

The things I can’t remember
The things I forgot to say
Will haunt me forever
Tomorrow and today
All my yesterdays
For just one more day

The things I can’t remember
The things I forgot to say
Will haunt me forever
Tomorrow and today
If I could only touch you
In that old familiar way
I’d give all my tomorrows
For just one yesterday

Just give me one more day
Oh Lord I do thee pray
I’ll make it all up to you
When I meet you on the way
The path that I have chosen
Is sure to set me free
Just give me one more tomorrow
So I can live today

    Hello Stephen, I love this and the effect it had on my mind when reading. Everyday I wish The Lord could give me that one more day. I love this and how you took it and gave in your tomorrows for another sweet yesterday, in hope the feeling and memories will last... thank you for stopping by.. Luv ~LINDA

    Thanks Linda, Always good to hear from you and read your comments. We are all looking for that extra day or one more chance. I wish I could get it right but I am human just like everyone else. All we have is memories. ~Kilmer

    Beautiful message. I am sure many can relate. I hope you find comfort and more inspiration. You're an excellent writer. I must apologize. I've been out this week on a family trip. But I just wanted to stop by to read something of yours. Great one yet again mister Kilmer. Always, Laura
