Is Today Actually Tomorrow
Woke this morning, thought, might take a shower
it's 9:00 am already, will eat lunch in a few hours.
When I dust and make the bed, chores will be done
why check the ballgame scores, don't care who won.
After my nap, think I'll watch the kids play
wrote in daily journal, didn't have much to say.
Almost time for news, weather and that wheel game
can't recall who won yesterday, prizes seemed the same.
Dinner wasn't too bad, eat fast when dining alone
nothing's on the TV, nobody to talk to on phone.
Might as well go to bed, be nice to fall asleep
there's no reason to get up, no promises to keep.
Tomorrow will be another day, do it all over again
really miss old crazy Joe, he sure was a good friend.
Laying here listening to the siren, headed to the fire
it's quiet, peaceful and empty, wonder why did I retire.
