Remember,the early bird gets the worm. Luke

I Am The Morning

I am the morning I greet you each day .
Before your eyes open , God ís universe at play
Sunshine on the horizon , you have little to say
A new dayís going to greet you any old way .

Now the fact of the matter is Iím here to stay
So how you greet me , does that matter today?
You can resent me with your face in a scowl
Or you can embrace me with a hug and a howl .

Love it or hate it , life is like that .
It comes at you each morning as a matter of fact .
You can choose to embrace it , put on a good face
Or hide in a corner and decide not to race .

God gave us all that freedom of choice .
To influence , inspire and learn to rejoice
To embrace life with love , persistence and passion
As God blesses us each morning with glorious compassion .

Yes , I am the morning , each day a fresh start .
Try never to miss me and hold dear in your heart .
The thrill of each morning and dawnís brilliant skies .
To greet as Godís blessing as you open your eyes .

WOW!!! The birds chirping, the sun and the new day is such a blessing to have and wake up to. This is beautiful as he gives it to the wicked, just, good and evil.

I agree with Andre.
This is beautiful...sure beats the Bible thumping about God, when you can enjoy nature's gifts and the heavens. Well done.

Wonderful wise composition... "I AM THE MORNING" glows as it flows
through its lines of wisdom.

Never rest Your pen, Poet!

This is an exceptional piece..
and the pic truly depicts me of too shall pass..

That picture pretty much describes my back of late first thing in the morning...though your poem describes the mood I try for...Ed & Rufuz
