Promise of a new life

 
The promise of a new life 
beams like the sun rising o'er the East--   
Bright, vibrant, illuminating, warm. 
The light you are destined to bring to this world 
has already brightened all our lives-- 
as it is sure to spread to every corner of this land. 
Yet, even as shadow recedes as noon approaches there 
is always somewhere not warmed by the light-- 
how unfortunate these spaces would be if not lighted
by you--the warmest radiance of all.

And, as it is that we cannot but glimpse the brightness 
of our solar friend without fear of blindness, 
neither can we gaze into your brilliance to see 
what so many tomorrows will bring. 
But the promise of discovery makes every moment elapsed 
an eternity of possibilities.

And though we cannot know what bright future
destiny holds for you, 
we can all imagine, dream, ponder. 
Yet, in the end you will choose on what celestial path 
you wish to wander. 
And, such as the stars arise from the collection 
of matter to one venue, 
So will your life be made from what you gather 
from those around you. 
Thus, though the path you choose will be your own, 
the journey of your life will never be yours alone.
