A NEW BEGINNING
I lived day by day,
Telling myself things will get better.
My life I tried to end,
’cause life to me seemed hopeless.
A new beginning you gave me,
A second chance at life.
Dead ends kept following me,
No matter how hard I tried.
Every time I tried to die
That unborn picture came to mind.
Seeing you suck your tiny thumb,
Seeing you yawn in my sister’s womb,
Made me realize I need to live.
I cried in fear, “What should I do?”
That picture came to mind,
That picture of you.
A new beginning you gave to me,
Now you are here.
You let me taste the life,
The life I tried so hard to end.
Now I share my breath with you,
And hold dear to the memories we’ve shared,
And will continue sharing in the times ahead.
I thank you now for giving me
A new beginning – a better life.
