Just When I Thought

Just when I thought

I had nothing left to say

The new morning brought

A few more words my way

Again I was taught

To celebrate each day

it’s always worth a shot

When hope shows up, let her stay

Now me, I used to have a lot

Of reasons I’d delay

But time is shorter than I thought

Don’t wanna let it waste away

So at the break of every day

I wanna live what I been taught

I’ve seen the games that people play

It don’t take much to get distraught

And be that as it may

I guess that’s why I still jot

Down what I’m trying to say

Even when I just cannot

Be certain things will go my way

But I’m sure there’s still a lot

To do before I hit the hay

Creeping up in my blind spot

Is something we call yesterday

Don’t let it be an afterthought

There’s time to try another way

Oh – and I almost forgot

Shout it out with me: Anchors Away!
