Every day matters...
Herald the day, born unfailing, each dawn.
A gift, it comes in good faith, with a soft
whisper promise rendered all in a waft
whether valued or not; never withdrawn
lightly hope or life but belief be pawn.
If only our self-made limits we scoffed
and manmade demands we kindlier doffed
with each other, opportunities spawn.
Aurora’s light lifts up our kohl-rimmed night
as ever it’s done, our sojourn but brief,
renewing the chance to affect our plight.
Having wakened with wonder, this insight
replaces ruefulness; provides relief:
Made - My way to affirm today – I write!

|"Never withdrawn lightly is hope or life but belief be pawn. "
Another way of saying, positive action always comes before solid belief, for "actions speak louder than words."
