New life

New life

You whose life is on hold
rise up from your self
shed all past pains
and grasp the day
with eager hands

See how the daffodils
have opened overnight
how effortless their nature
and such beauty
in the spread petals
formed from sunlight
they bring light into the life
you should be leading

I have seen bees toiling
endlessly to advance
the universal purpose
that all things should have
more life increasingly

You whose life is on hold
refuse to lie down
beyond yourself
joy and love await
in the life that fosters
new life
