We don’t know what tomorrow will bring
But we plan to do our best.
That’s what you do with
One day at a time.
Always we are reaching out
Knowing we are there
Knowing you are there.
So much of life is attempted
With life’s blind fold in place
Hoping we get it right,
Allowing patience to guide us
Placing one foot before the other
Believing we will find a sure place to step.
Every so often we lose our footing
We stumble and fall
The world we know vanishes
But only temporarily.
We are resilient folk
We find ways to return
Resurrect and replenish ourselves.
Despite the initial thought of a needing space
For no matter the fear we feel in losing what we treasure
The treasure itself is what nurtures us.
So we pick ourselves up
Dust off the hurt, push aside the obstacle
Watch the dawn arrive
Resolve to try again
Because we are worth it!
