A Million Dollars


I won a million dollars today.
I am rich!
All the pile of undone things
Got taken care of.
All my worries about tomorrow
Gone in an instant.

I went to work at dreaming...
What to buy...
Gifts to give...
Changes that would happen
How my friends would feel...
Where I'd go.

Got to be wise.
Save for the future.
Plan for the family.

I had it right there in my hands.
A blessing from God...
An answer to prayers...
An indescribable relief.

Then I read the fine print.
