The sun has begun to set and I hang up the
smile I've worn all day. Though I will make
sure it is the first thing I put back on in
the morning because just in case it is 'that
day,' I want her to see me at my very best.
I do the normal routine, eat dinner, clean
the house, write -- the usual stuff.
And then I lay down hoping to fall asleep
quickly so my new day will hurry up and
arrive. A new day with a brand new sun.
But as I lay there and wait for the world to
turn half way around, I think about her. And
sometimes I smile, and sometimes that smile
will turn into a snicker, and then often
that snicker will turn into a burst of
And then there are times I get that lump in
my throat and that tight feeling in my
chest, and sometimes that feeling overwhelms
me and begins to turn into a tear, and often
that tear multiplies itself and I can no
longer fight the feeling and I lose the
Then somehow through either the joy or the
sadness I drift and find myself asleep. Then
the dreams begin and keep me company until
my new day arrives.
When I awake it's with such excitement!
Because I tell myself this could be the day
that every other day has led up to and the
first day of the rest of my life. I quickly
dawn my smile, because I do so want her to
see me at my very best. Then I look out the
window even though I know it's dawn, but I
still have to confirm I've been given
another chance to find her.
And there it is ... the sun, even when it's
cloudy; somehow I still see it. And it
smiles at me and I say "thank you" and I
Then I ask myself, "Is this the day?" And
the excitement rushes over me again. And
then I ask myself, "Where's it going to be?"
Maybe it'll be at the water fountain and
unexpectedly there I'll find her and much
more than my thirst will be quenched.
Maybe it'll be at the grocery store, and
there she'll appear as I'm picking out fruit
and she'll show me the difference between
fresh and spoiled. Then from that moment,
nothing that I will eat will ever taste the
same. Because she'll bring out the simplest
beauties in everything I see, taste, smell,
hear, or touch.
Or maybe today will be the day when my Angel
brings an item up to the cash register
without its price tag. And as I wait behind
this Angel with all the frustrated people
who are in such a hurry about their busy
lives, I will find myself with such blessed
extra time. Just enough time to start a
conversation with this beautiful vision
standing behind me that I might not
otherwise would have noticed. But because of
a "price check on register 5," I was able to
So will today be the day I say, "THANK YOU
GOD!" Thank you for the sun, which began my
new day. Thank you for granting me the faith
when I arose this morning that I would find
her in this new day. But most of all, thank
you for me not having to ever wait on
another sunrise. Because whenever I want to
see it, I will look at her and there it
shall always be, in her eyes, she will
forever hold it for me.
She is my sunrise, my dawn, my new day.
