Just an Ordinary Day

One day I looked up,
it hadn't been any sort  
of special day, just a normal
day.  A day when babies were
born world wide, and death
sought out those to die,

A day when strangers were married
somewhere, a day where some war
had more than likely began.
A child's pain, a woman's tear,
a man's pride to do or die
Just an ordinary day.

As I looked up the sun was
high, my hand covered the brightness
from my eyes, and there in the shadow
I saw him - a slight glow of anticipation
filled my heart, for in my mind, I knew
I knew him.  

No, I had never really seen him before,
but I knew he was the one I had been
waiting for.  His smile when it came
brought out the clarity of the day,
no it was not just a normal day

No day is an ordinary day, but it took
a moment in time, in the glaring sunshine
to open my eyes wide -  to find that
everyday is a special day for someone
somewhere far and wide

Teresa,
Very moving, especially since I know the story behind this poem. God bless you and yours.

All my love,
Jeffrey

 I lie awake in a world filled with dreams,
but dreams can be so real when you don't know you're asleep

Very nice, Teresa! I enjoyed being brought into your world and see this day through your eyes... and indeed... you are right... all days are special. Thank you for sharing this.

Netswan...this poem is very, very inspirational.  Have you considered submitting it to Blue Mountain?  I could see this on a card.  

Thank you not only for writing, but for sharing.
