New Day


I wake up to the sunshine,
A smile on my face
I turn over and see my best friend,
I know I’m in a safe place

I look up at the ceiling,
I thank God for another day
I let my feet hit the floor,
And I let faith lead the way

I take a brief moment,
Just to breathe in the air
There’s no life without oxygen,
That’s something we all share

I walk through the hall,
Feeling each step I take
I smell a pot of coffee,
I like the sound it makes

I face today with an open mind,
This life is too short to be unkind
I sit at the table and thank God once more,
These are the things I am grateful for

    Love this poem. It really reminded me to be thankful for each day, it’s a gift, not a given right. ❤️
