" Seven-Day Program"

A seven-day program, seven days a week
This is my routine which falls throughout the week

Mondays in the morning I think about the past,
wonderful memories too good to have last

Tuesday I try to think and debate;
will you stand by my side, will you hold out and wait?

Wednesday I think about the future to come,
hoping you'll be there when my time is all done.

Thursday I write you to tell you I'm fine,
hoping you'll write back to say you're still mine.

Friday I'm hoping I might use the phone
to tell you I love you and wish I were home.

Saturday is the day I hope to give back
wishing for a visit in hopes you'll be back--
with hope still alive I dwell on the fact
of our love, our lives, we'll soon cross paths.

Sunday is the sabbath day, I take off and pray
to thank the heavens above for sending you my way.

Now the week has passed, Sunday comes to an end
but I wait towards tomorrow, when I start over again...
