|I opened my eyes to see|
A beautiful gift for me.
A new day to unfold
With stories as yet untold.
Will it bring moments with friends or family?
Will it bring big news, good or bad?
Will it be a day of happiness,
or will it leave me feeling quite sad?
I will accept this gift quite gratefully--
It's not given to every child, woman, or man.
It is truly a precious gift,
and I will make use of it the best I can.
