A NEW BEGINNING:

(I wrote this many years ago
after two berevements,somehow
It seems appropriate for the present)

A NEW BEGINNING:
Today for me the sun shone,
Though it was pouring down with rain.
For I awoke this moring
With less heartache and less pain.

It was a lovely feeling,
I've got plans to make.
I have to think positive
If only for my sake.

I have some dreams in mind
That I'd like to fulfil.
There's a little voice inside me saying
"I can, I can I will".

First I want to make a stand,
Let no one put me down.
I want to wear a smile on my face,
Not some gloomy frown.

If I want to sail the seven seas,
Or climb the mountains high.
If I want to make my mark in life,
Then at least I have to try.

Of course I can't forget my loved ones
Who have already passed on.
Neither can I ignore the fact
Today the sun has shone.

So I'll start this new chapter in my life,
With my loved ones by my side.
For I'll never know what I can achieve
If I haven't really tried.

Taken from my first book
Negative V. Positive.
