Just for today, what does that mean?
What about the years? And months in between? Each week, each month each year will come
But only after each day is done Yesterdays gone, it’s in the past
The future will come, don’t wish it away fast 24 hours we can all manage
Just concentrate on now, forget all the baggage 8 hours of sleep makes it even smaller
16 hours not gambling, it’s not a tall order. Get dressed, eat breakfast it gets smaller still
Then promise yourself and know that you will Not gamble today, there’s not much time to fill Go work, do jobs or just have some fun
All of the above have got to be done They fill up the time
And help me to rhyme “Never again” is sometimes too daunting
With the casinos or bookies tempting and taunting Say “I won’t gamble today” and really believe
Coz a day at a time we all can achieve.
