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 that’s 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


Don’t 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 it’s easier than you think… Starting Over
