I’m not saying it’s easy to get up in the morning
and be okay with a quiet smile,
with cold water instead of hot coffee,
and music and no warm body.
But I’m also not saying it’s some great leap
from here to there;
it’s no new sacrifice.
I’m not saying that things won’t have to change,
that there isn’t work to be done,
but as long as you’re pushing already,
changing directions ain’t a big deal.
I’m not saying ‘Goodbye, Blue Monday,”
but it’s kindof implied.
