Today

Today has granted me some faith
The dark side will not thrive,
A fragile hope I dare to hold
That keeps my love alive.

So gentle was this day, despite
my fears that all was lost,
I found some kindness in the air
like clouds and fairy dust.

Old bitternesses found no place
to spoil my peace of mind,
they simply burst and spun away
to learn how to be kind.

Twenty three thousand breaths today
were all it took to build
a vessel made of loveliness
just waiting to be filled.

Today has granted me some faith
The dark side will not thrive,
A fragile hope I dare to hold
That keeps my love alive.
