second chances

How often we wish for another chanceTo make a fresh beginning. A chance to blot out our mistakes And change failure into winning.

It does not take a new day To make a brand new start, It only takes a deep desire To try with all our heart.

To live a little better And to always be forgiving And to add a little sunshine To the world in which we’re living.

So never give up in despair And think that you are through, For there’s always a tomorrow And the hope of starting new.
