Today, a new day is birthed,
The rising of the sun feted
Like the joy of a mother
Who gets her baby’s first bother.
Welcome, to the dawn.
Today, a new idea is birthed,
A new territory now charted,
Paths for giant strides parted.
Here comes a dawn!
Today, off my eyes fall scales,
To see I towed a path unfit,
That I might again set my ways
On a ground for me divinely fit.
A new dawn, here it comes!
Today, an opportunity is lost.
All hope seems gone.
Every attempt, a shot in the dark it seems
Light at the end of the tunnel beams
For a new dawn is about to surface.
Today, a crashing relationship,
Even a hopeless marriage,
Can stand time’s test
With love and faith.
Just believe, a new dawn lies in wait.
Tempted to throw in the towel?
Life seems so cloudy, no sign of silver shining?
There is wind for your sails!
Believe and Rise! It’s all you need
For your life…a life of dawn!
