As the sun beats down
on another glorious day,
the blackbirds are singing
in their sweet little way.
The world is still
and my mind is at peace,
how I pray for this stillness
as it offers such release.
The sky so blue
and clear overhead,
the world still in slumber;
tucked up in their beds.
Dreaming of worlds
with strange designs
and, for now at least,
this moment is mine.
To sit back and breathe
the freshness of the dawn,
the early morning dew
sitting twinkling on the lawn.
The gentle sway
of the rustling trees,
disturbed from rest
by a gentle breeze.
The distant sounds
of a world slowly waking,
muted in the background,
from the moment, not taking.
The best time of day
is the first light of dawn
as I sit and ponder
a life newly born.
The sun, the sky,
the birds and myself,
the warmth soaking through
with a feeling of good health.
If there’s one thing I could say
to you my dear friends,
it’s that I pray that this moment,
for us, never ends.
