New Beginnings

Turn the pages from the past
Put your worries in last place
In those fretting times
where hope has vanished

search for a caring embrace

Use a shoulder if it’s offered
when tears begin to fall
They’re not a sign of weakness
but a cleansing of the soul

Take advantage of the sunshine
warming your spirit with it’s rays
  and even when the clouds are rolling
there’s always reason for praise

Faith, Love and Strength
follow Hope in each new day
and with each precious baby step
You will find your way

The Cards We’re Dealt

We sail through life smoothly
until a wave knocks us down
with no means for escaping
no turning around or backing away
We’re still caught in the aftermath
of that dismal day

The best move is to dive in head first
We may get hurt
where our emotions could run so wild
that our souls would be fully drained
from the collision of shock,
new found pain

Where tears could fall so long and hard
that face muscles would begin to dance
and our happiness would be scarred

Our only choice then,
is to move forward
We must learn to deal
the hand we’re dealt
and consent to acceptance

With weeping more infrequent
and the embracing of strength
Our eyes will open to the light and follow
allowing Hope and Faith
to enter
our hearts once again
