A New Day Has Come

We fly my younger son from Maine to Georgia tomorrow to begin his freshman year of college.

With mixed emotions, one of my longtime favorite songs, one that deeply resonates with my life with sons, haunts me……

I was waiting for so long

For a miracle to come

Everyone told me to be strong

Home, home and don’t shed a tear

Through the darkness and good times

I knew I’d make it through

And the world thought I had it all

But I… was… waiting… for you

Hush now, I see a light in the sky

Oh, it’s almost blinding me

I can’t believe I’ve been touched by an angel with love

Let the rain come down and wash away my tears

Let it fill my soul and drown my fears

Let it shatter the walls for a new sun

A new day has …..come

Where it was dark, now there’s light

Where there was pain, now there’s joy

Where there was weakness, I’ve found my strength

All… in… the eyes of a boy

Hush now, I see a light in the sky

Oh, it’s almost blinding me

I can’t believe I’ve been touched by an angel with love

Let the rain come down and wash away my tears

Let it fill my soul and drown my fears

Let it shatter the walls for a new son

A new day has ….. come!*
