A Brand New Day

When I woke you were there
When I spoke you were there
Every minute of every hour of every day
You were there
I didn’t always see you
Often I didn’t acknowledge your presence
Sometimes I didn’t want you there
Watching the things I was doing
You were there in the quiet
You were there with my tears
You were there in the laughter
You were my conscience
You were my mother’s voice ringing in my ear
You were my best friends advice
You reminded me
You urged me
But you never forced me
You dealt with things Things
That I didn’t even know needed dealing with
You opened doors
And placed my feet on a steady path
You rarely got thanked for the things you did
And often got blamed for things
That obviously weren’t your fault
But just now and then I stopped and remembered you
And all you stood for in my life
And you acknowledged me with a Brand New Day.
