Preparing for your life to change

Starting a new life, part 1, preparation

A new life will be starting, with the ending of this day,
The life that I once knew, has now been safely packed away.
The life that is to follow it, is hovering close by,
And with tomorrow’s sunrise, bring clarity to the sky.
My life’s in preparation, there’s just one more night to go,
In those first hints of dawn, a new life I will start to know.

Just for now I must be patient, to sort out what to take,
What will travel with me, on this journey that I will make.
So much I’ll leave behind, with some things I’ll never finish,
As slowly into my past, their presence will diminish.
For in tomorrow, a new life is waiting to unfold,
And with its coming, a new story ready to be told.

This long night has now ended, tomorrow has now begun,
The promises of this new day, kissed by the rising sun.
My new life is beginning, I am setting off at last,
It’s unfolding there before me, it’s time to leave my past.
Time to take the bits I’ve chosen, time to be on my way,
I’ll leave the rest behind, for they’re now part of yesterday.
