The morning sun shines bright through my window
I can breathe
The pain of the night before
seems faint and almost unreal
I can't seem to remember
what the tears were for
what the sadness was about.
As I sit up
wipe my eyes
and take a deep breath
the warmth of a new day envelops me.
It's hard to believe but I'm okay
I'm bursting at the seams with love and light.
With this new horizon comes the joy
for the potential that each new day holds
With yesterdays end
comes the promise of today's start
and it's there that I set my eyes
it's there that I place my hope
it's there that I leave the sadness and expectantly embrace the joy.
I'm letting go and it's in that release
that I'm free.
