This Day

Today I will take one word
And thus make it sing;

Today I will free one bird
And help give it wing;

Today I will smile at you
And allow you to be;

Today I will laugh with you
And pray you laugh with me.

Today I will cherish all things
Just because they are here;

Today I will give of myself,
Because I hold me dear;

Today I will face my fear
And fly straight in its face;

Today I will hold you close
And be nourished from your embrace.

Today I will do, and be, my best
And know if I fail, I tried, the test.

And tomorrow, I will begin again.

18 November, 1999

Beautiful, Sunshine. How could we do any better?

Yesterday is history, tomorrow just a mystery. And if today is good to me how could I ask for more?

Terrific, Sunshine. If only everyone felt that way the world would be a much better place. Thank you.

Sy, I hope to be a light to someone today, and in the hereafter, wherever that may be for any and every one. I've made just enough mistakes in my past, all I want to do is rid myself of them in the best way I've always known, but failed to follow.

Hopefully, I will end up being a good lesson to others.

Sunshine,
You can see from your answers that you are much loved. Do not look for forgiveness the only forgiveness you need is to yourself. Once you have done that you are free. *L*

Sunshine ... I hope you know that we all hold you dear. And this poem is a statement of your strength and hope.

Well done. Just begun.
Each day the shining
of your sun.
Sent to warm
another's heart,
words of wisom
you impart.

I should just print this one out and tuck it in my wallet - so I think I will.  Words to guide us through the day, Sunshiney Sunshine.  Very well written.
