It's time to move on
you've been idle too long
today is a good day
you have to be strong.
You will make a new friend
with whom to enjoy the days
to bring back the laughter
and help get through the maze.
Like a team
we will work together
to comfort and support
be there for one another.
So get on with the new
it will feel strange
but in the end
we all have to change.

~Lorraine~

Like a team

So get on with the new
it will feel strange
but in the end
we all have to change.

Well said, though I don't know if we change as people ( that much anyway ) I prefer to think of it as growing, learning from life.
But I am just waffling on here. anyway, enjoyed your poem. It sounds like a good guide line on how to live each day.

today is a good day
you have to be strong.
You will make a new friend
with whom to enjoy the days
to bring back the laughter
and help get through the maze.

we will work together
to comfort and support
be there for one another.

Hmm, change is good it opens doors to possibilities one may explore.
This poem you write is quite uplifting in spirit and in heart the way you've expressed it I really enjoy reading it.  I sense, I'll come back and read it again and again!

Thank you.
