This is a New Day
By DeAnn Lain

My eyes opened this morning
Allowing my eyes to focus is the first thing I need to do before I can see you
I glanced around the room and then I looked at the ceiling
My first thought today is; this is a new day
A new me; A new place to be; A new way to see how life could be for me
I can’t change yesterday its gone forever, but I can change today because I’m in it
Yes, I sure am taking my time before I rise
Slowly I sit up as I take a deep breath my lungs have to wake up too
I let it go to hear my own heart beat oh how beautiful the sound of life can be
I smiled and said good morning to me on this new day
A new me; A new place to be; A new way to see how life could be
I can’t change yesterday its gone forever, but I can change today because I’m in it
My feet are on the floor
Love rolling my head round and round as sit on the edge of the bed
I can feel the blood flow move up and down my spine
Another deep breath I let it go on this new day
A new me; A new place to be; A new way to see how life could be
I can’t change yesterday its gone forever, but I can change today because I’m in it
Standing up to balance my rested body to stretch my limbs
I hear my bones cracking; I feel the tightness in my back that means I’m alive
I’m waiting for the rhythm of my body get in tune from head to toe before I take my first
step
Now I’m ready to begin my day because I remember to start with me first on this new day
A new me; A new place to be; A new way to see how life could be
I can’t change yesterday its gone forever, but I can change today because I’m in it
Off I go
