Awake

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.
