A new dawn

To some it's just another day, but to me it's a whole to year! In the words of Nina Simone, "It's a new dawn, It's a new day, It's a new life," and the older I get the more I realize that good health is all that matters. Be good to yourselves and others, enjoy the year ahead, and try to find beauty in everyday things.

Birds flying high you know how I feel
Sun in the sky you know how I feel
Breeze driftin' on by you know how I feel

It's a new dawn
It's a new day
It's a new life
For me
And I'm feeling good

Fish in the sea you know how I feel
River running free you know how I feel
Blossom on the tree you know how I feel

Dragonfly out in the sun you know what I mean, don't you know
Butterflies all havin' fun you know what I mean
Sleep in peace when day is done
That's what I mean

And this old world is a new world
And a bold world
For me

Stars when you shine you know how I feel
Scent of the pine you know how I feel
Oh freedom is mine
And I know how I feel

— Nina Simone
