New Beginning - inspirational poem

Updated on August 3, 2015

New Beginning

We travel along life’s winding road,

never knowing what is around the bend

Yet one thing will remain true,

your memory will never end.

Your leaving is not the end,

it is merely a new beginning,

like a flower blooming in the spring

which endured the cold of winter,

new buds arise and reach for life,

it’s all a new beginning.

No-one knows the secret of time,

nor the reasons, nor the rhyme.

Like a ship sailing the open sea,

we sail towards the sun,

we treasure our past, but now we see

the future’s just begun.

Lift your sails to the carefree wind,

in time we’re bound to meet again.

As the sunrise greets another day,

the sunset greets the end,

take courage in all that is in between

and your dreams will never end.
