The first day of the rest of my life

Today the past has gone
The cloud has parted
The way is open
The vista is clear
Don't look back
In anger?
In regret?
Bring to mind Lot's wife
And the ruin that befell her life
As she looked back
No don't look back
Keep your eyes forward
Look there are enough bumps ahead to avoid
But for now enjoy the freedom
Enjoy the new wine
Walk ahead
Remember who you are
Be aware of what has happened, of how you got here
Look left and right
See those who are with you
They are with you
They are for you
Enjoy their presence
Give them yours
This is life
The first day of the rest of mine
