'Highly Favoured'


Do you see what I see? In the light of the new day While birds chirp Expectantly Do you see the potential? Of trying again Doing it maybe a little Differently A new day, Another chance To try old things Or something new The favour and grace Of being woken up Can only be fathomed When you witness The sadness and heartbreak Of someone who lost a loved one The what if’s and the wish I could haves Written on their faces So if today you wake up sad, Tired of life and all its challenges Spare a thought - You are still needed Someone still needs you To be their shoulder, Someone still needs you To share in their laughter But most importantly You are still here by grace

    the last two lines say it all, but the rest of the poem led beautifully up to that. Wonderful, Wilma.

    "Tomorrow" is humanity's gift from life. Most selfishly unwrap it. But, others hold on tight...beautiful.
