If My Only Poem for Today

When I rise
to a new day of life
one more time;

impressing me
to press forward—
expressing sentiments
and my words of
this wondrous

If this is the only
poem to float
from my lips this day,

let me find fulfillment
with the breaking dawn;

let my satisfaction come
before I go on my way

in a simple phrase,
in one bare line
when I wake
and say—

nothing more,
and nothing less;
Just in a simple

thank you’.
