So May The Sunrise Bring Hope Where It Once Was Forgotten

You seem to have a deep nostalgia for the recent past.
Not a fondness, but a sadness.
It’s just behind you, still in sight,
But forever out of reach.
Don’t dwell, dear child, on those things
Which cannot be undone.
They will not make you happy.
Look now to what is ahead,
What will come with the rise of the sun.
A new day, another chance
To shine.

Tomorrow holds great power, sweet thing,
And it’s yours for the taking.

(Title taken from ‘Upward Over the Mountain’ by Iron & Wine)
