Today is a day like any other,
The sun will rise just the same,
And nothing exciting will happen,
No miracles will pour down with rain.
Today you will get out of bed
And still go to do your job,
Still do your tasks and chores,
Still have the same responsibilities.
But maybe on your way to work,
You’ll help that lady cross the street
And you will never know
That she is crying because
Until yesterday she would have hobbled
Happily along her old husband,
But she would have been alone today
And every day from now on.
But maybe while picking lunch,
You will smile at the girl across the counter
And you will never know that she blushes
Because she spent last night crying
Feeling worthless after her lover left her,
And she would not have realized
She was worthy of someone’s attention
With her red rimmed eyes and splotchy cheeks.
But maybe when you go home,
You will buy that little kid an ice cream
And you will never know that
He doesn’t smile from the sugary treat,
But because he couldn’t have told
Whether the world was a good place still
After his mommy left him.
Today is a day like any other.
Every day is equally good
To be the day you change someone’s life.
