I woke to shining sun

by jimowensjr

I woke to shining sun;

Blue sky in the morning,

It spoke to me so softly,

In its gentle warning;

Life is meant for living,

Each and every day.

Please do not waste

Nor fritter it away;

Risk is but a dream;

You should take the chance;

To try something new,

Or maybe simply dance;

Or sing atop your lungs,

Smile at a passing stranger;

In the little things

There really is no danger;

If in these all you fail,

Worry not your head;

I’ll be back tomorrow

To remind you what I’ve said.
