A Day Like Today
On a day like today we chased the clouds away,
And tore into the day just like a train.
We went about our chores, and opened many doors,
And scurried to the shores of love and pain.
And when our day was through, we hurried home to you,
And came and sat real close upon your knee,
And whispered in your ear of times and years spent dear
Till now we have come home so sweet and clear.
So now I tell you this, there is no greater bliss
Than standing next in line to tell our tale
Of love and sorrows lost; and sweetness through the frost
Of fear and retribution, and all this.
So come home all to me, and see the sorrow free
And find your solace here with all of me
Then you will go to bed with cabbage at your head
And while away the time in joy and glee.
