Ujamaa Christian Poetry

Each Day

Each day you allow me to wake up
because you have kissed me with breath.

Each day I arise just as you touch the sun
and it arises with me.
your hand moves over the moon as each day ends.

Each day that ends closes with the aurora of colors
more beautiful day after day, such as the rainbow
you have graced us to see after every rainfall.

Each day I find your beauty and you speak to me
even through the butterflies, bird's bees and the trees.

Each day I thank you more and more for this gift of life
and sight to really see how wonderful you have made
the world for me.

Each day is the first day for the rest of my life
Because I have you and eternal insight.
