Good Morning, Starshine

 

 

The dawn sun cracks the horizon

Whispers words to wake the world

Our sleeping ears refuse to hear

Snuggling deeper in blankets curled

 

But bid she does, that you would wake

And receive her blessed day

Revel in the light she doth bring

Before the passing of her ray

 

These gifts not seen for their worth

For tomorrow we easily surmise

Will turn the earth about once more

And grant us another sunrise

 

They happen just like clockwork

But not a one is e’er promised

We must use this gift that is given

Lest the next be one that is missed

 

So, whisper back her kind hello

And greet her in a thankful way

Go out and make the most of life

Just in case this is the last day

    Brad this is so very true and also something we should never take for granted and yet I don’t wake up every morning and immediately feel grateful like I should, I try to be grateful every day but don’t succeed.

    “But bid she does, that you would wake
    And receive her blessed day
    Revel in the light she doth bring
    Before the passing of her ray”

    The above is just so beautiful. I really enjoyed this poem and it was a reminder I needed this week particularly, so thanks Brad for reminding me to be grateful every single day! Gorgeous poem Brad. You have a blessed and wonderful day full of love and gratefulness. Sending lots of extra hugs and love today. Jonikins

  9. Beautiful, Brad, beautiful.
    “Go out and make the most of life

    In case this is my last day I am going to read one of your poems and then ask you to let me ride your bike right into the dawn. Will you let me do it?

    • Brad Osborne says:

      Of course I would let you do it. But I do have a suggestion. Rather than read a poem of mine, write another one of yours. There are never enough of your beautiful words! Thanks for all the love! πŸ’•

  10. Beautiful Brad! Be grateful every day for that day, that is all we can aspire to, tomorrow one never knows if it will come, yet, we are such optimists that we set the alarm clock! Humans! Great work my friend!

    Nice! It is good to not take tomorrow for granted. Embrace the day that you have.
