The Blessing

The Blessing short poem

Photo by jemasmith

May the best day of the rest of your life begin today
May all those yesterdays that sought to destroy you be captured
May all your yesterdays that meant you no good be found guilty as charged
May all your sad songs of yesterday that sought to put you down, end today
May any days of terror be arrested and charged for attempting to do you harm
May the eternal judge silence your days of sorrow and sentence them to prison
May they be condemned, locked away and forgotten, never to intimidate you again
May they be tried and convicted for inflicting pain on a good and decent person like you
Yes my friend, today is indeed a very good day designed with you in mind for your rejoicing
