One day at a time

It’s hard to remember how it felt before
Now I found the love of my life…
Passes things get more comfortable
Everything is going right

And after all the obstacles
It’s good to see you now with someone else
And it’s such a miracle that you and me are still good friends
After all that we’ve been through
I know we’re cool

We used to think it was impossible
Now you call me by my new last name
Memories seem like so long ago
Time always kills the pain

Remember Harbor Boulevard
The dreaming days where the mess was made
Look how all the kids have grown
We have changed but we’re still the same
After all that we’ve been through
I know we’re cool

And I’ll be happy for you
If you can be happy for me
Circles and triangles, and now we’re hangin’ out with your new girlfriend
So far from where we’ve been
I know we’re cool

I read the lyrics while the song was playing and froze…

One day at a time, I’ll get there. I don’t know, maybe in the end I’ll find myself left only with his words on the shelf and be content with it… But for now I can only wish…wish he’d had the guts to let me call him his new name…wish I can take and give his old name away… Maybe one day…when other days are but distant memory…would be nice to see our kids play…
