Daily Choice

December 13, 2008

As dawn awakens
As a new day rises
As tomorrow arrives
Possibilities multiply

The weight of a world
So many, alone
In fear, pain, and loss
Approaches, tempts

So too, does the hope
Of the angels among us
Of the choice of divinity
Taking new flight

Each lonely walker
Filled with their stories
Memories held
Cherishes, adored

A choice each new day
To love or to fear
To live life or not
Alone or together

As dawn awakens
We are each presented
With the weight of the world
And the lightness of heaven
