I wrote this poem just before my divorce was final... lost in thought about starting over and beginning a new life! ...and starting over is easier than one thinks, as long as you have a plan! Now I know it to be truth as I found the right woman to share my life with, Maritza.

Starting Over



All must be finished before you can start


††††††††† Including the affairs of your sacred heart


Must let go of that selfish pride


††††††††† To mend the hurt thatís held deep inside


Each sunrise brings the promise of a new day


††††††††† The promise of a chance that will come your way


The challenges you face can wear you down


††††††††† Must force that smile to be rid of the frown


The thoughts of the day can weigh heavy like lead


††††††††† Retain that perspective and raise your head


Focus on the good, the happy, not the sad


Make good your intentions and you will be glad


Life is too short and time is so dear


††††††††† Devise your plan to recover that year


Donít deny the forgiveness that is long overdue


††††††††† Make one step forward and just be you


Open your eyes, your heart, and mind to see


††††††††† Someone will enter your life to set you free


It takes great strength as you get older


††††††††† But itís easier than you thinkÖ Starting Over
