Treasure Island

Will Reilly

One Day at a Time

Youve seen better days you know its true
But dont let that hold you back being blue
You know youve got me, ill never leave
Youve got me to see through if things get rough
One day at a time dont rush ahead
One day at a time, you'll be fine
Not too fast, youll lose yourself
Just know that i am proud.

Dont let the past bring you down
I know what youre capable of
now show the rest
Its been a tough few years
But youve made it through
Get back on your feet and start fresh
One day at a time, dont get depressed
One day at a time is all I ask
Dont do too much and tire yourself
Just be the best, and ill be proud.

I know youre doing the best you can
to make up for time that we let pass,
time we lost.
But we're making it up one day at a time.

One day at a time
One day at a time

Poem of the Day

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
