A Shiny New Tomorrow

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I now live in Daytona Beach, Florida. .

a-shiny-new-tomorrow

In this crazy world,

I sometimes think -

that I am but a cloud,

passing by, blown by the wind.

I look at the birds,

so happy and singing,

able to fly here and there,

so carefree.

And I wonder -

Am I like them?

Can I take my troubles

and toss them aside?

Sing a merry tune

and go on my way.

Then comes a rainy day,

it fills me with sorrow,

then I remember,

there will be a better tomorrow.

So I say away with all my tears,

bring on the smiles

and the happy days.

Nothing in this life,

can be any better -

than the dreams that we dream.

Giving us hope for the future,

perhaps we’ll catch that lucky star,

shining upon us from afar.

Favorite songs bring golden memories,

while we put our sorrows behind.

Always grateful,

for the blessings -

that are bestowed upon us

and able to sail into a bright and shiny -

new tomorrow.
