Begin Today

Updated on June 7, 2013

Van Morrison/These Are The Days

Today began

With just a breath

An inhalation

Of no more than air

Of no more than sight

Of no more than spoken or heard words

Today began

And I am alive

To live this moment

To smile and laugh

To sing and dance

Whenever, Wherever

Today began

With no restraints

Around my heart

Around my hands

Around my feet

That they may take me

Anytime, Anyplace

I will go into this day

Absorbing only my freedom

Remembering the simplicity

That it all began

With just a breath....
