Not Today - Poem by val legend

There cometh a day
when I will be as strong as I was before you
but not today...
There cometh a day
when I can look at your pictures and smile
but not today...
there cometh a day
when I can look at you
and not burst into tears
but not today...
There cometh a day
when my memories will not be shadowed
by the day you left me
but of the good moments we had
but not today...
There cometh a day
when my pillows are not soaked in tears
but not today....
There cometh a day
when I wont spend every minute missing you
but not today...
There cometh a day
when I won't stay up all night wishing you were here
but not today...
There comes a day
when my wounds will be completely healed
and would be left with just a scar
but not today...
There comes a day
when I can mention your name without hearing my own voice quiver with tears
but not today...
There comes a day
when someone mentions you name
my sore heart won't bleed
but not today...
There cometh a day
when every breath, sound, smell, colour, place, sunrise, sunset, love song, love story
don't remind me of what we used to be,
what we could have been
and what we are
but not today...
There cometh a day
when I can close my eyes
and images of you will not flash right before my eyes
but not today...
There cometh a day
when I will forgive u for leaving me
and this burden of hate and anger would be lifted
but not today...
There cometh a day
when I can stop loving you
and I could tell everyone
I once had a lover
