With the dawn of each new day …

Das folgende Poem ist Michael gewidmet:

With the dawn of each new day,
when the sun’s radiant rays fill the sky,
when night’s curtains are drawn tight,
when our spirits once again soar high,
when life is reawakened by brilliant light,
when new challenges await
for good deeds to be done,
let us willingly begin anew.
We live on a planet
where not every space is fresh, and bountiful,
not all lands are covered by green meadows,
fertile fields, or lush forests.
In many places the sun’s rays
fall on rugged, rocky, dry and barren ground.
Everywhere life exists or barely subsists.
We have to make the best
with what we were given,
with whatever we have found.
Let us be positive and purposeful.
Therefore, let us be,
each and every day, safe and sound
We know exactly what to do
to make life safe, secure,
and really worth living
by caring, by sharing, by giving.
Then we’ll have no regrets
when the day draws to an end,
when light begins to fade,
when the sun once again
begins to descend.
We have no regrets,
we have nothing to defend
when the day welcomes back the night,
and sun light takes a well-deserving rest.
We can reflect, we can assess,
we can reevaluate, if indeed
we have done our best.
Let us, for that reason alone,
live life in peace!
Let us live life to please!
Let us be grateful to be alive!
Let us do what needs to be done,
so we can all progress, grow, and thrive!
Let us be profoundly thankful
to be so wondrously, prolifically, plentifully,
and divinely blessed!
