Every Day

Written by: Bill Lindenmuth

Every day is a little more special
With every breath we take
With every moment that passes by
The impressions that we make
With each breath we are given
The first could be the last
Simply making the best of them
Let your present be your past
Brave enough to answer
Any beckoned call
With strength enough to face life
The toughest battle of all
Every day that we are here
Each moment will be blessed
We stash away our sadness
Striving for happiness
Sometimes things don’t go our way
When our hurting takes center stage
When anger overwhelms us
To the point of a burning rage
Soon however it comes to pass
And the pain will slowly fade
Light emerges from the darkness
As we walk out from the shade
Let every breath have meaning
With purpose to each moment in time
Never forgetting how to smile
While moving to the rhythm of the rhyme
We dance with love awhile
For every moment this heart beats
For every breath of fresh air
The blessing of friends and family
And precious moments we share
These words are not forgotten
They reside deep in my heart
For everyday is worth living
Each waking moment a start
