Day One

Day one; a newborn sun
Bar the door on memories
And now let’s have some fun
Our minds sail off choppy seas
Stand tall, stillness finds your knees
And now let’s do as we please

Forest’s floor bristles with fur
Life carpets the thawing ground
It’s just like her; for a color blur
Heat erupts, a chorus of sound
Everything lost has been found
Heavy hearts have lost a pound

The sun’s rays, a new coat of paint
Melts the pain, darkness’s drain
Kicking a new path with no complaint
‘Cause there’s a fresh day to be slain
And as we peek at day two
Another life begins anew
