When Will That One Day Come ?
That Day When Life Makes Perfect Sense
I remember growing up
I would get in trouble
My father would say one day
You are going to get it
You will see what I am talking about
There were other times too
If I didn't do good on my grades at school
If I didn't understand what my father was trying to tell me
The same line applied to so many different circumstances
Not just to me but other people
If he read about someone stealing a car or doing something real bad
One phrase to keep me thinking
Was he making it all up?
Did he know something I didn't and he wasn't about to tell me
Would he hold out?
For what purpose could he have?
I was sound asleep with my wife and in bed
Our cat got over rambunctious
She was laying down next to me for awhile
Then she got into a mood
Like a child going through the terrible two's
Nothing seem to make her happy
She went on a rampage clawing at a cloth container we put our clothes in
The words just came out of my mouth
One day Charlotte!
At that moment
I turned into my father
I got up out of bed and see if she needed anything
I went into the kitchen and she had plenty of food and water
I pulled up a chair in the kitchen
Called to her
She hopped up in the chair next to me
I patted her
She stayed for about ten minutes
Then off to her little bed in the living room
Well, maybe this is the day
My one day finally came
