Day breaks

and I wander into Eilidh's room
To see her smile.
I pick her up
and she cuddles in.
She looks upwards to her bird mobile and blows:
Not enough to make it move
so I help.
And I start singing...
(Or at least I try to sing!)


"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 in the trees 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


Dragonflies 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 the day is done
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


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

My favourite song...
I think of it every time I see the mobile above her cot.
A new day, Eilidh-Bear:
And we are feeling good...
