Yesterday was a flurry of activity.
Waking up late
With a million things
On my plate
I just didn’t want to disappoint
I didn’t want to make mistakes.
I rushed to the subway
With a knapsack full of clothes
And a bowl of jello in my hands.
Gritted through the hour journey
And made it through the doors
Took my smile out of my pocket
And found my rhythm on the floors.
A nervous shy wreck .
And in certain situations
I can feel the onset
But yesterday was different
Because all the little smiles
From all the little faces
And all the eager questions
and unexpected embraces
Warmed me from my heart to soul
So that even when I had to go
The feelings lingered on and on
Like a beautiful, delicate, lovely song.
