I Wish Everday Was Sunday

If everyday were Sunday, I’d have a full week off

I’d be lazy, just lay back and rest

I’d have a grand vacation

and come back at my best

I’d have all the time in the world

would never be in a hurry

Would do the chores slowly and surely

I’d never move fast or scurry

 

If everyday were Sunday then there would never be a Tuesday

Or a Wednesday, Thursday or Friday

People would never be grumpy since there’s no Monday

They’d be happy too if there were Saturday

 

I can only wish this were true

Still, I love the other days too

Just not as much as Sunday though

When Monday Never Came

People were wondering what could have happened

For some strange reason, Monday never came.

 

Tuesday was present, jubilant as ever

Waving here and there, welcoming a wonderful day

“Good day! Good day!”, it just kept saying

 

Thursday was looking ’round

Surprised to see so many gathered

It didn’t stay long and left in a hurry

Shouting, “Friday’s almost here!”

 

Sunday peeped but changed its mind

Instead, out came Saturday looking a little dazed.

It walked slowly, talked slurred

Could not walk a straight line

It held a coffee mug on one hand

And merely smiled at the onlookers

 

Wednesday was grand,

he kept shaking people’s hand

It was as if he won the election

“Middle of the week!”, he exclaimed

“You’re almost there.”

 

Now, Sunday was shy so outgoing Friday came out with it

They held hands and stood in the middle of the crowd

“Where is Monday?”, the people asked

Sunday replied, “well, he always comes right after me, so he may be coming anytime soon.”

“He always comes before me, I’m sure he’s just around”, was Friday’s reply.

 

On and on the week came and went

But Monday was nowhere to be found

It was as if he disappeared or just didn’t make a sound

“Manic Monday will surely come”, the people kept on saying

But it would seem it won’t be anytime soon

As Monday never came

Sunday Special

 
Nothing like waking up to a mildly cold weather

The rain has just stopped, everyone is still asleep

Stretch those slowly aging bones

Greet the day with a smile

Today I feel like being lazy

Maybe even pull some Bruno Mars song

I might watch a movie through DVD or HBO

Maybe buy some chips, anything can happen

Karaoke is also on the list,

A bit of dancing perhaps, let's do the Twist!

If the weather will get too hot

Summer in the Philippines can be tough

I'll probably fix a shake

Or go to the mall and eat Halo-Halo

Today's my day, today is special

Anything can happen....anything at all
