A New Day

The world will turn again
Each moment the angles change.
Each hour, the tide flows its way.
The birds wake up—the day rewinds.

The words float through my sleep.
Songs are all around me again.
This is my daily experience.

I remember what my friends say.
They guide me in a sleepless night.

The night is just a moment.

The beginnings will help me smile.
They create a new cycle of joy.

I say hello to the future.
Predictions are worthless.
Reality always surprises me.

After I awaken,
I reflect on my decisions.
My attitude touches the world.
Tomorrow will change today.
