Words to start a day

The world has turned
one more time
for you to face the sun

When you step out
into your day
blink as you may
but appreciate the force
of a universe
that spins this world
in such a way
that its perfect grace
blows the kiss of wind on your face

And when this day is done
your only sorrow
is to know that tomorrow
this world will not turn for some
