Each Day Is New

A poem

Each waking, I greet a new day
I may have plans but surprises come my way

The kindness of strangers makes me glad
For who are lonely I feel sad

In my garden, spring flowers are in shoot
I celebrate that 
soon I won’t wear my boots

Each day there are seconds of more light
In two day there will be two minutes less of night

From this season of slumber and decay
New beginnings will come every day

Each day is new and brings it’s joys
Sometimes tears but that is how we appreciate joy

I have new friends as well as long ones
I treasure each like the warmth of the sun
