This is a day to walk away from what was
And begin anew.
A new life, a new hope,
A new light and home,
A new season, a new feeling,
And sometimes a new beginning from the old.
A time to rebuild, renew and remold –
In these beginnings there exist endings.
Some welcome, some not.
What I thought was, wasn’t and
What I thought was done, was not.
But now there is a mellowness, a warm light,
A subtle joy in these changes as
I sense a grace in my thoughts, a softening of my soul,
A warming of my heart,
A fullness of my being and
A richness in my life.
This new now brings me peace, gratitude and
Strength, along with an acceptance of what is,
The ability to let go of what was as it is gone,
And to think not of what may be as that is yet unknown.
And so with faith I will rest in the arms of the now and hold dear against my chest,
Like the tiny body of a baby, my heart and watch its pain and sorrow melt away and
Drift with the tide out to sea,
Comforted by the light and love of the full moon.
At last I can rejoice in the here and now
And hold close the loves in my life without fear.
I will fill my soul with gratitude for this new peace and
Begin each day with love for the miracle it is and
The joy that these new beginnings bring.
