Just One of Those Days

Today was just another day
That seemed a bit too long
When nothing seemed to go right,
And everything went wrong.

But, my memory keeps returning
To the lady at the checkout stand,
Whose eyes absolutely twinkled
As she smiled and said,
"Do you need a hand?"

Then there was that little boy,
Holding tight to his father's hand,
He grinned a toothless smile to all who passed,
Predicting he grow into a caring man.

The sun slipped behind the horizon,
As I trudged wearily home alone.
Whereupon, in the distance, I spied
A warm and cheerful glow.

There in the windows so bright,
Stood my family, beckoning me,
"Welcome home, welcome home, 
   We love you, can you see?"

I love this one.. Most of my poems are dark / gothic.. This poem gives hope and kinda makes the reader step back and take a look at the bigger picture. Keep it coming. All the best -Marion-

Light hearted and good spirited I have to say Mandi! This would be really great at Christmas time, you should send it on your own Xmas cards with a family photo! I enjoyed it! Thanks! Love, Rose :)

To have great poets there must be great audiences too.
