A Good Day

Tags: health, life, gift

Today was a good day

The sun warmed the morning

The ocean was calm, just a soft breeze

A light touch of salted air caressed my cheeks

Not many days like this have I enjoyed

For many months it has been cold and dark

A soul that once thrived, has lost its shine

The fear and uncertain nature of the unknown

How quick one is to lose faith in the power of healing

Health might be the one thing we take for granted

To breathe, to walk, to see and feel

These things one does not know that they are a gift

Selfish as a Grinch or foolish as a toad

One must fall hard to truly understand

Finding the strength to stand tall comes with pain

As I once heard someone say, "blood, sweat and tears"

Today I stand free of misery, that menace burnt away

The smile has returned to these once aching lips

Tomorrow, who knows but this I will say

Yes, today indeed, has been a very good day
