and i say, its alright.

it's a beautiful day today.
the skies are the bluest they've been in a long time.
i woke up with this song in my head.
i think it's for you little darling (you know who you are)...

....it's been a long cold lonely winter
little darling, it feels like years since it's been here.
here comes the sun, here comes the sun
and i say it's all right. -the beatles

today, i waited in line at the market...and the length
of time i stood there may have upset me if it weren't
for the baby boy in front of me that i couldn't stop
making faces for (its funny the things people will do to make a baby laugh)...
that little smile was enough to make my day.

that...and maybe it was the conversation i overheard
between the young married couple next to me.
he was telling her how he hoped to give her everything...
all the beautiful things she could ever want.
she didn't say anything...just turned, and wrapped her
arms around him in a loving hug.
i knew at that moment she didn't want any beautiful things.
she just needed him. and he needed her.

and i say, it's alright.
