Another Day--By John W. (Bill) Williams--United States

Another Day

Each day God grants the power of life
Is a gift of no comparison.
How wonderful to walk
In the soul lifting beauty
Of His Marvelous creations…
If tomorrow comes, take a moment
To thank our holy Father
For His inspiring gifts, and rejoice
In the blessings of another day.

John W. (Bill) Williams is a retired language arts and children’s literature educator.  He lives in Martin, GA, where he stays busy with his art and poetry.  He has been published in a variety of venues.

  1. Hello, John! I love how your poem embraces the gift of life! Sometimes we get caught up in our moment and forget this is a day by day, hour by hour - gift. To thank Him is the right thing to do! Thanks for this reminder! Sheri / www.poetryandbeyond.net
