ready, set go
and I woke up
and my cat is right next to me, draped across my lamp base
and I got to dance with him today
and I can hear the birds outside my door
and the music of Pat Metheny in the background
and I have breakfast
and groceries on the way
and pet groceries on the way too
and I get to pace myself to keep feeling better
my voice is coming back
and I never left
and I get to paint my clothes today
and love my life today
and go to the Gulf of Mexico today
and have a hot date with me today to watch Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris
and that’s my time but only for these two minutes.
Go out and make your Saturday count.
This is the only today you have after all. Love you and talk to you later.
