Waking up to a new dawn,
a new tune of birds
chirping, waking up the planet;
A new sun, a son, someday
a sobriety of mind and body,
a reassurance of the day after tomorrow.
On knees, praying, beseeching for
a reignited dream. The end
to promises unforthcoming.
Waiting for a reason
to smile again, to laugh again,
to live, waiting to liven others too.
