And so, on this day of new beginnings
search deep into your soul for heart’s desire
reach out to embrace the new, the different
open your mind to possibilities
regardless the toll of heartache, anguish
resolve what is born again faithfully
see and feel those morning sunrises
shine through the darkness into the light
Embrace the many blessings before you
raise up your spirits in welcome, restore
bathe in the beauty, it’s there, beholding
touch its presence in healing and glory
abolish the pretense living with vision
make your own and your best human story
for a life in its shortness never fails
to avail the sadness, heartache, despair
Love with intention and purpose giving
joy and fulfillment everlasting
as though with each day eternity comes
yet all tomorrows remain a question
show truth in conviction unwavering
see the flower that seeds our earthly souls
for Heaven awaits divine intention
choose peace and love for the heavens can wait
Forever uplift a lonely spirit
nurture and harvest the good in those whose
own purpose walks on a path of promise
hold them close to heart as reassurance
that life is a gift and not thrown away
hear the call of the songbird, wilderness
whispering in prayer of thanks and giving
in thanks and happiness living each day
Show the misguided another way for
goodness in life forever teaching rests
for the better, enriched are the blessed
in comfort, hope, unwavering measure
embrace new beginnings, now and ever
~Happy New Year beloved friends
make today the dawn of life in changing
