SUNRISE - SUNSET
And everything in between
Is the Creator's grand scheme
To depict the many shades and colours
That represent a sacred dance called life.
And all of nature joins in the dance
Both in shade and sunshine alike,
For whatever the weather
The dance must continue
Through highs and lows
And everything in between.
As we strive and struggle
To come out from the shadows
Into the light of a brand new day
All that is asked is that we try our best
For nothing worthwhile ever came easy.
At the end of day
As the sun begins to wane
I share in the beauty of what is God's domain
And send this prayer to my guardian above.
Please protect my soul as I sleep
That it may be held in love's Divinity
Giving me the strength to grow in wisdom
And the gentleness of heart to reach out to others.
No matter the hardships that life has dealt me
Help me grow in beauty from within.
And as the sun rises with each new day
May I reach up to place my hand in yours
Thus allowing me to dance within the light
Giving hope to others along the way.
