When I Awake
By Catherine Pulsifer
Each day I awake I can lie in bed
Or I can get up and get ahead
A new day to achieve my dreams and goals
Or a day to relax and just take a stroll.
My attitude determines what each new day will bring
I can be thankful for all the little things
Or I can be full of dread and fear
And miss opportunities that are so dear.
Life is too short to waste our days
Get out of bed, be happy and say
A new day has been given to me
I bring to it the best I can be.
