I feel this change; it hovers in mid-air,
Arising from the inexplicable,
Leaving my doubts, and pain, and despair,
Bringing confidence. It’s indefinable...
Into a chance turns impossibility,
Giving hope and delight for tomorrow,
Announcing gently a new reality,
Abandoning the bitterness and sorrow.
First sunbeams reach the recesses of my mind
And I’m finishing my everyday prayer.
Old fears and shadows ask me to stay behind,
But now I am determined and much braver.
So I’ll take the risk, and follow the change,
And give in to the current of the river.
I’ll alter everything and rearrange
Putting my hopes and trust in my Father.
