Awake to a new sunlit day
Filled with an aura of hope
After sleeping off the memories and pain
Of trying to climb a slippery slope.
How I have attempted to claw and arise
Out the valley of hurt and disappointment
And so finally view the aqua-marine sky
And be robed in new hopefulness.
Standing to be washed and bathed
In the shimmering warm sunshine;
Wrapped tightly in the streaming rays
Of gentle hope and peacefulness.
Though the day be filled with tasks
That I must dutifully complete,
I can still stop and rest at long last
In the sunlit blanket of warmth and peace.
So I will hold my head up high
To wonderingly and wistfully gaze
Into the neon blue sky
Of this glorious new day.
And then my heart may be content
By the many sweet blessings
That the Lord has lovingly sent
To instill my soul with peace and harmony.
