On Day One is a perfect song for Father's Day or for a brand new parent or grandparent of a newborn son (thus the title). Unlike any of bluZ's other songs, On Day One is a mid tempo country shuffle with some slide guitar and bluesy licks sprinkled throughout.

    On Day One

    On Day One

    Written by bluZ (copyright 4-19-2016)



    You were not here yesterday,

    But you are here today,

    Lying so silently

    In a small Lucite tray.

     

    Your face all scrunched up,

    On your head a knit hat

    Makes you look like an elf

    Or some creature like that.

     

    Chubby cherry cheeks

    Subtly move as you breathe.

    I could watch you all night;

    Really don’t want to leave.

     

    As I stand and observe

    My first newborn son,

    My mind starts to race.

    Questions have begun

    On this your day one.

     

    Will you succumb

    to the false gods

    of that glow beneath your fingers?

     

    On whose tortured screens

    There’s nothing redeeming,

    Only flaming and litter,

    And folks who are bitter.

     

    Will you die as a soldier

    In a faraway war?

    Away from your family

    And your being’s core?

     

    Will you marry the girl

    Who lives just next door,

    Or find for your mate

    Someone chosen by fate?

     

    You have no idea

    ‘Bout the things that I fear

    For you on day one,

    Before you’ve begun.

     

    But I’ll always be here,

    Your sword and your horse,

    Until the tables are turned

    And you become boss.

     

    That’ll happen in time;

    There’s no fighting that.

    But it won’t be tomorrow.

    How’s it that I know?

    Just look at your hat.
