Simple Things - Poem by Jerry Caldwell

Daybreak, and here am I
Starbound against the sky
Have you ever watched a blossom fall
Or heard a Robin call and wondered why?
For awhile, think on the simple things
How a smile can cause a heart to sing
Daybreak is just a prayer
For the many things the day can bring
A heart full of simple things
Nightbird, ride the wind
Find your way to where the day begins
Shadows waiting in the fading light
Have whispered their goodnight and slipped away
Hear me now, think on the simple things
How a song can cause the world to sing
Kneel now with me in prayer
For many things the day can bring
A heart full of simple things
A heart full of simple things...
