Almost Daybreak
by Cheryl J. Howell
May 22, 2012

You see, I'm on a journey into dawn.
I'll cross the foot bridge in morning's first light,
While courage is still high and heart aglow—
Before my morning turns to dark of night.

My heart says "yes" to this new adventure,
My Travel Agent is making the plan.
I don't know just what the new day will hold,
But I will retire there, in that new land.

Will it be an unending vacation—
Clear flowing streams and a calm waterfall?
What will I find there at the break of dawn;
What will I hear when I answer the call?
