A new dawn…

The sun came out this morning
And snowdrops
Popped their tiny white and green heads up
The ground was covered in white frost
As Spring announced that she was on her way.
So yet again the seasons change
Other changes happened
And are not to be undone
We brush ourselves down yet once more
As we now ready ourselves, to move on.

The feet feel heavy as they take those first steps
Into a world
Of challenge and new hope
Yet there still lives a taste of bitterness
That makes it hard to hold back
Those salty tears.
And though our memories will linger forever
Of a sweetness now just beyond our reach
We’ll tell all about that magical goodness
In the stories we tell and will teach…
