Just for Today

Just for today, I am not OK
Autumn's beauty empty to me;
The sun, aching bright, so cold.

All around me lost and lonely
Leaves fall, no last blaze of glory, 
But tattered, decayed confetti.

Just for today, I am not OK
I crack with the puddled ice.
Knife sharp air cuts at my face.
There is no comfort here. 

Just for today, I am not OK
I will allow myself to feel
The weight of ages crushes and I fall.

I am not OK. 

And tomorrow I shall pick myself back up
put melancholy in its little box.
Put down the memories and find my thankfulness.
