A New Day

A Childhood Cancer Survivor Poem
© 2016 Christine Mulvihill

Morning sun falls upon my face
The signs of summer dance around the room
A new day is here.

The sun stretches its warm fingers to the four corners of my room
My rested eyes flutter open
A new day is here.

I fling the covers off me
The dust flies up and then down like snow flakes
A new day is here.

I stretch my back and bones
Reaching for the sky and the ground
A new day is here.

I flop back on my bed
The dust flies around me
A new day is here.

Morning sun falls upon my face
The signs of summer dance around the room
A new day is here.

All today’s thoughts
All today’s problems are now yesterday’s memories
A new day is here.
