DAY 12 Imagining

(david m. bailey)

A friend said I should try to imagine
Not what might have been but what could be
I thought I’d write down one or two ideas
Then stopped when I reached page 23
Now, Lennon, he already said it
I ain’t gonna reinvent the wheel
There’s more than one way to imagine
And there’s more than one way to heal

Now there’s a chance, you see, my rok-star days are over
And there’s just as good a chance they’ve just begun
It’s hard to imagine doing anything else
Cuz good Lord, I’ve been having so much fun
And it sure feels-like I was doing what I was meant to do
How it got sweeter all the time, I still don’t have a clue
I’d be lying if I told you I don’t already miss the stage
I’ll make it back ; but that story is on another page
And when I do it might look a whole lot different than before
I can try to imagine what new things are in store
But the truth is I never did imagine it would ever be as good as it has been
More than a decade of mysteries and miracles brought me to this day that I am in
So I guess all I’m really trying to say is when it comes to the days that are ahead.
I expect to be surprised far beyond what I imagine
and I guess I like it better that way instead
