Two Steps Forward

Things are going

Two steps forward

And one step back

So do the math

That's one step forward

One foot in front

Of the other

And we can only go forward

I'll take the good

I'll take the bad

I want your happy

I want your sad

I want quiet moments

A warm embrace

I want your hands in mine

Fingers intertwined like

When paperclips get stuck

Together in a pack

And you really don't want

To separate them

I realize I'm not dreaming

Yet I'm still baffled

Like forever passed

In only a day
