New Beginning

By Bette McGregor


It’s only the beginning now

A pathway yet unknown,

At times the sound of other steps

Sometimes we walk alone.


The best beginnings of our lives

May sometimes end in sorrow.

But even on our darkest days

The sun will shine tomorrow.


So we must do our very best

Whatever life may bring,

And look beyond the winter chill

To smell the breath of spring.


Into each life will always come

A time to start anew

A new beginning for each heart

As fresh as morning dew.


Although the cares of life are great

And heads are bowed so low,

The storms of life will leave behind

The wonder of a rainbow.


The years will never take away

Our chance to start anew,

It’s only the beginning now

So dreams can still come true.
