Something awakens me in my bed,
A sound from just out of sight.
Black fades to gray to white,
It's finally time to say goodbye to the night.
The horror and fear of the night before
Begins to fade away
As I peer into the clear, blue sky.
I drop to my knees and give thanks to the Lord
For the gift he gives,
I am alive!
The smell of green fields
Caresses my nose
As birds sing and fly on their way.
I stand and I smile and prepare to face
The promise of a brand new day.
