May I be excused just for the day from the lessons of life in this huge classroom
where we live and learn?
I am finding the lessons
of this earth too hard to learn.
Just for the day, can I stop to rest in a quiet place
and lay down my head.
As you know, I have lost my son,
and the role is too hard for me to play on this day,
the words spoken are false
my face is a mask, and my smiles are fake.
The only truth I see is love, and that I find hard to see today
So please, God
may I have this day
just for me
just my inner peace
that's been missing for some time.
Please God may I be excused.
Just for the day?
