A NEW BEGINNING:

,

(I wrote this many years ago after my two berevements,
I also think it reflects my current situation
regarding my family.)
A NEW BEGINNING:
Today for me the sun shone
Although it was pouring 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 fullfill.
There's a little voice within 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 onesd by my side.
For I'll never know what I can achieve.
If I haven't really tried.

    There is a whole wide world out there waiting! Positive implementation should be easier to follow once there is positive thinking among the players to address the problem
