A Brand New Day

A new sunrise and a new sunset,
The worries of old I will soon forget.
A brand new day and new memories to make,
For the world is mine for me to take.

New dreams to build, and new things to plan,
And a whole new place to say, “I can”…
This is the beginning of the rest of my life,
A new future to build, new goals in sight.

Yesterday has come and gone,
And now is the time for me to move on.
To pick up and say, “This world is mine”…
And to show how bright my life can shine.


I hold my destiny in my own hands,
Now I will make all my own plans.
With the lessons of yesterday deep in my heart,
I have a Brand New day, for a brand new start.
