Just One Day

I want to be Cinderella For just one day Live in an enchanted castle And dance the night away. I want to feel lucky For just one day Buy a lotto ticket And win the big play. I want to visit Belize For just one day Dive into the ocean And watch the dolphins play. I want to listen For just one day Spend time with my children And really hear what they say. I want to completely stop For just one day Enjoy life’s treasures And take time to pray. I want to be an angel For just one day Bring someone a blessing Then mysteriously slip away. I want to be a writer For just one day Touch someone’s heart In an extraordinary way. I want to soar like an eagle For just one day An icon of freedom Inspiring the American way.
