Not Giving Up.

Those days when the covers
Slip over the head.
Those days when the darkness
Holds fast in the bed.
Those days have ended.
There is something new today.
A gift to be given.
Because showing up was the way.
Muddling through.
Pushing hard.
Screaming until empty.
Pouring out the heart.
Those days are tucked away.
Sleeping quietly.
Whispering.
Go now, explore what life brings.
Open to the possibilities.
Open the heart even more.
Free to fly now.
Choose to soar.
For not giving up
A greater reward.
Seeing life brand new
In this beautiful world.

Newness

It's on the tip of your tongue
The warmth of your breath
Something has changed
You do not know it yet

Feel it deep within your soul
A fire so strong you have to grab hold
It will consume you they all cry out
Consume away you scream and shout

For life has meaning a purpose brand new
Something that crackles and spews
Sudden sparks of delicious through and through
Greatness was born out of love to improve.

Reflective Changes

Staring into the vast unknown
Feeling for a seed of growth
Not sure we're the tide pulls me now
Knowing for certain I are safe some how

Looking for it in your face
A gentle knowing, a warm embrace
Not sure if it was all a fake
Something you offered, something you take

Reflective changes I must make
Out to the vast unknown to create
A life newer than what you can take
Something for me, something to make

Grass should be greener
The laughter more pure
The changes I make now
Will lighten, strenghthen, help to ensure

Reflect on them, a little more
Am I really, really sure
Yes, it is right the time is now
Let me see how this unfolds some how

A Toast to New Beginnings

Although the day started out the same,
Like any other day.
It's new! It's new!
You chorus to me.
Embrace the day!
Let it be!
Think of it in all of its newness.
Celebrate the way that the day unfolds.
See the blessings, the opportunities, and magic.
Watch your eyes open wide.
For today is new,
And fill of surprise!

Embrace the day, and it's glorious unfolding.
See the deliciousness in every moment.
Toast the day!
To new beginnings!
Let's go celebrate!
