Hour One, Song One

Shadows of yesterday linger

While the new sun rises.

I am grief.

I am regret.

I am sadness.

A new day is here but I can’t move on.

Music fills the air, but all I hear is you.

I know what you’d say,

“Be good, be happy, and take care of the babies.”

But it’s hard to start at hour one

on a new day

in a new song

without you.

I am the new day.

I am the new verse in the song.

I am what you were.
