Opportunity

Kevin Anderson 1965 (Ill)



Each day is an opportunity met or missed
For a day most do wish

Struggles and strifes were promised from the start
When two make one it's a meal nothings
à la carte

I have been battered and bruised on the heart
It's callus from where to tear

It knows how a special day is manifested
For two to be they must be tried and tested

It a coarse course to venture while searching for a day-to-day
That's why it's got to be special or it's just okay

Each day is an opportunity met or missed
For a day most do wish
