REFRAIN

My veins are longing

Longing to be filled

Into expansion

To grow and share my all

And all that I can be

Gentle, small beginnings

Getting stronger every day

Soaking in the nourishment

Soaking up the rays

My color deepens

And with every drop of rain

I live

Until the Fall

Then I refrain

NEW BEGINNINGS

NEW BEGINNINGS

Gripped by the strength

Of an unseen hand

I was lead to freedom

In the promised land

******************

My heart filled with joy

At the sight in the mirror

A smile I thought lost

Forever is clearer

******************

With goosebumps on skin

As I ready myself

For the hand of another

And nobody else

******************

Vows to be taken

Spoken from the heart

Blessed by our God

And a brand-new start
