Where it not for you- by Juan M.S

Where it not for you,

a day like today,

like too many days,

would have no sense.

Though other days like today,

like other such days,

kept some resemblance of meaning

in their shape and color,

the texture of its hours,

their defined civil status:

free or married,

or divorced from everything,

holy or unholy day.

But this special day

in which meaning is conspicuous

by its absence,

only you make sense

among all the senses

that life can have.
