Today is first day of rest of my life


Start afresh ..... make a new beginning .....


Today is first day of rest of my life

I’ll make a beginning devoid of all sorrows and strife;

My gratitude to God for this wonderful life

And good health and good cheer in rest of my life.


I’ll begin my day with some walking and exercise

And feeding my pet ducks at the pond will be nice;

Meeting fellow walkers and friends at sunrise

Say “Salaam” and “Good Morning” to friends at sunrise.


I’ll spend some time doing Meditation at the pond

I’ll observe the ripples where fishes abound;

And listen to bird’s songs and quack – quack of geese

The chirping of birds is a soothing song of peace.


My ducks come swimming with 9 ducklings in tow

It’s really a heavenly sight to behold;

The squirrels come down trees and steal some duck’s feed

The ducks don’t mind sharing their food indeed.


With such lovely beginning I start with no rife

Today is first day of rest of my life;

The future will unfold and bring me God’s Blessings

Today some Miracles will get me Glad Tidings.


Today I drown myself in some worthy task

God, shower your love and blessings I ask;

On all the humans so as to benefit humanity

And take one and all in your Divine sanctity.


Today is first day of rest of my life

I’ll make a beginning devoid of all sorrows and strife;

My gratitude to God for this wonderful life

And good health and good cheer in rest of my life.


God's.Blessings
