Missed it-One day at a time

One day at a time With the delusion of anger, falling from my eyes, The veil of bitterness, Torn from the one I despised, My heart withers in my chest The spell that cast a shadow on this beauties shimmering frame That hid a wonder a mystery this woman bearing my name. I cannot believe I’ve lived alongside you for so long And missed the chorus of a lover’s refrain. We like strangers in the night Ships passing by on a foggy sea, Have rediscovered each other again, Fearful yet wanting, the task ahead daunting, Forever changed by the crimson stain, Leaving us equipped in ways we can never explain. One day at a time, we live for these moments, One day at a time, is all we are given, And by the grace of God our one day at a time will turn into memories That we will share over a lifetime.
