For The Moment

by
 Life is simple and gay
The bright sun rings with a quiet sound
The sound of the bells has quieted 
 down
This morning the light hits it all 
The footlights of my head are lit again
And the room I live in is finally bright

Just one beam is enough
Just one burst of laughter
My joy that shakes the house 
Restrains those wanting to die
By the notes of its song

I sing off-key
Ah it's funny 
My mouth open to every breeze 
Spews mad notes everywhere
That emerge I don't know how
To fly toward other ears

Listen I'm not crazy 
I laugh at the bottom of the stairs
Before the wide-open door
In the sunlight scattered 
On the wall among green vines 
And my arms are held out toward you

It's today I love you
