Bonus days

Warm days in late Summer
are bonus days
the fact that you know
the cold is on his way
makes you appreciate
the here and now
the sun on your skin
makes you begin
to wonder
what else you took for granted
what else you didn’t notice
and why something so simple existed
for you not to know this
‘cause everyday’s a bonus day
when you’re not hurt or suffering
don’t be afraid of the clichés
but think of what they’re offering.
