Every new beginning starts
By walking away.
It’s finding the inner strength
To let go of yesterday.
Memories want you to linger;
Thoughts of what you leave behind.
Anticipation moves you forward;
Wondering what tomorrow has in mind.
Surround yourself with flowers now.
Something about them calms the fear.
Find a place to just be still.
Let God be ever near.
This new beginning
Is part of the path that’s meant to be.
It leads to future memories;
New joy and happiness. You’ll see.
Every new beginning
Somehow makes you cry
Because every new beginning
Starts by saying “Good-bye”.
