Not like any other day because this only comes once every four years.
Something extra for you today
What will it be?
An extra donut, an extra beer
An extra hug for every tear.
An extra ounce of confidence, maybe
Or some extra fries at Jollibee.
However you want to spend it,
May you enjoy each moment.
Yes, I included Jollibee right there. I’m Filipino, it’s pretty much a given 😁
My knees feel the tension
I almost buckled
My heart leapt from my throat
I half cried and half chuckled
I told myself I had to start somewhere
And now is as any good of a time
So I closed my eyes and there I was
I took the chance
I held my hand out,
Touched the air.
I stepped out and saw the rain
The sun was hiding.
I felt my heart beat slowly, calmly
And with closed eyes I took the leap
Another day like any other
Wake up and don’t even bother
Check the date and then you see
There is an extra day, a little extra time for me
Make the most of it,
Make it count
I had my heart broken before
And I think I’m about to once more
But each heartbreak is worth it, I know
So once again I go as I say geronimo!
