Today was the last and the first day
in the story of our life.
Today was the last time that I will ever
hold you close to me.
Today was the first day
that I begin again to call you by name.
Today was the last day of a life
that we spent years building together.
Today was the first day, the first step
in learning to live alone.
Today was the day the rings came off
and got put away in boxes.
Today was the first day in a very long time
that I am in a room alone.
Today is the days our hearts our breaking
the day that tears flow like the rain.
Today is the day we learn how to be strong
and see what tomorrow brings.
Today is the day I surrender
to the dream that you’ll change your mind.
Today is the day I try to decide
what kind of life I am going to find.
Today is the first day of all of this
and the last day of all that was.
Today my heart is broken
tomorrow I will try again.
