Poem: Just For One Day

This poem was also a challenge given by the poet’s community.  The challenge was to write a poem about what we would want to do if we had one day to do anything.  The format was not set, just the theme.  I had many things I would like to do…so I put them all in here:

Just For One Day


July 23rd, 2005

Just for one day, I could dream many things.
What would I give a whole day for?
Is there anything I desire so much for?

Yes. Just for one day, I’d like to rest
In the arms of a man who loves me.

Just for one day, I’d like to know
That all my waiting hasn’t been for nothing.

Just for one day I’d like to fly so high
I swear I could never fall down.

Just for one day, if I did come down,
There’d be someone there to catch me.

Just for one day, I’d like to know
That true love really does exist.

Just for one day I’d like to be
All that God wants me to be.

Just for one day, I’d like to be strong enough
To climb the highest mountain.

Just for one day, I’d like to love completely
Without any strings attached inside.

Just for one day, I could dream many things.
What wouldn’t I give for a whole day
For anything I so much desire?

PS.  I wrote a new poem last night!  First on in about 5 months!  🙂  Maybe it’s coming back!  🙂

  1. The next 2 weeks will be the longest of my life. Much like the 2 weeks proceeding every other road trip we have ever or will ever go on! I’m already thinking about it constantly! CANNOT WAIT!!!!!
    We’re gonna show Philly whats up. And also the Super Panda in Pittsburgh. And also Scranton.

    Actually I think Scranton might show us whats up…

  2. Great thoughts!  The longings of the heart are very deep and I hope one day that all of the deep longings of our hearts may be met by the One who cares for us far more deeply than our longings!  God Bless!
