one foot ahead of the other,
I walk into the world.
The misty veil of the past lifts.
The winds of today’s spirit brush the earth.
Leaves whisper Nature’s song
of love and life.
I can feel the Sun’s rays touching me, warming me,
bathing me in His blessings.
Then, I open my eyes.
Waves of blue and green with splashes of gold, purple, orange—
The earth is aglow with trust and promise
and boundless love.
The world is new,
and I feel alive again.
