A slice of 'normal'

What I wouldn't give for just one slice of normal.  

To see what it looks and feels like... for maybe just a day.  

A life without Trauma, grief and pain.  
Children without mental health issues.  
A family unit that's complete.  

Instead, it's just another morning.  
Just another anger outburst
Just another shut down. 
...for reasons unexplained.  

Yet another accident.  
More clothes and floors to clean.  
Another phone call needed
Another email sent.  

I wish I could do more. 
I wish I could understand
I'd do anything to fix it
I'd do anything to go back

What were our worries back then?
What stress did life bring then?
I can't even imagine it again

But now life keeps on rolling
I'm faced with what I see
All I'd like is a taste of 'normal'
and a day that's issue free.
