Begin Again

by Alex MacGregor


Awaken, friends, this is the dawn of a new day
For now we leave behind the time we can no longer turn back
For now we leave behind the futile grains of unfulfilled sand

Let us not hold onto our grievances, the dead lichen of the day before
Let us not deny our potential, as a daffodil has sprouting from bulb to bloom
Let us remain humble and gracious as the snowdrops in the clearing

May we feel the sun on our faces, and the warmth of good love around us
May we carry the outlook of a clear blue sky, even when clouded over
May we be abundant and hopeful as the cherry blossom

As we begin again.
