May today be like the day
I first learned about Your love
May my passion be as strong
As the day You left above

May my humbleness grow like
On that day You came to me
The first time I finally learned
That You died to set me free

May today be just the start
Of the love I feel for You
As I continue to learn
May my love grow all life through

May my light still shine as bright
As the day I told a friend
Of the peace You offer us
How our troubled hearts You mend

May today become the birth
Of a brand-new love I sing
As I lift my voice to You
I will let my praises ring

Please remind me on this morn
That today is starting new
No matter of yesterdays
Still Your love to me is true

May today I be as strong
As when first I chose the path
As the day I took Your gift
When You turned away Your wrath

Today is the beginning
Of a life-long walk with You
Yes, today is just the start
Of a life to live for You

'May today become the birth
Of a brand-new love I sing

Beautiful! I love this stanza! Delightful poem.

Nice effort here!:) A few of the phrases seemed contrived and the rhythm was a little bumpy in spots, but I loved the theme.

This is delightful. A truely inspiring read. Poetically, the only thing that jarred for me was the You/You rhyme in the last verse. Yeggy

Poetry, Amy? Wow! And such great content too, as well as the way it flowed.

Well done!
