The Day by Gary R. Ferris
Through darkness and traffic,

I start each day;

On the miles to work,

I start to pray.
I talk to you,

And continue to stare;

And look to the right,

And you’re not there.
I keep on talking,

I’m losing my mind;

“That car almost hit me”,

He must be blind.
Off the ramp,

I pull into work;

Where it’s much to early,

For anyone to lurk.

“Would you like some coffee”,

I turn and ask you;

I sure would,

I’ll pour a cup too.
I set down at the desk,

As the phone starts to ring;

Could this be you calling,

Or what today’s work will bring.
As people pour in,

I forget for a while;

For sobbing over you,

Would cramp my style.
The whistle blows,

And the work is on hold:

It’s time to return,

Where life is so cold.

On the fight home,

I turn the radio on;

And sadness sinks in,

I realize you’re gone.
