(You ever have one of THOSE days…)

one more time
`

tonight i’m very tired

i can’t tell myself
one more time
there will be a
retirement in our future
when we’ll get to know
each other again

i can’t tell myself
one more time
my son will find
his niche in life
and be able to stand
on his own two feet

i can’t tell myself
one more time
there’s a miracle
out there somewhere
for my sister’s dying husband

but what’s worse,
i can’t even tell myself
one more time
that excavating my life
the past two years
has been worth it,
has helped me make
the positive changes in my life
i’ve wanted so much to see

maybe tomorrow
i’ll tell myself those things again,
but not tonight

tonight I’m way too tired
