As the sun begins to rise from the night’s sky,
My mind wanders to things bright and beautiful.
The twinkling Christmas tree in my space.
The people who have blessed my space.
I am forever grateful for every day new,
that helps me keep from the quarantine blues.
Tears prick my sleep-worn eyes,
as the resident cat rests near my side.
The love for her is wide and deep,
that helps keep me from fear and bleak.
All-in-all, my life is good.
Growing, healthy, loved, loving, laughing, and sometimes in a mood.
Thankful, though, for this day,
in all things and in every way.
