Stand before you

I stand before you
As did my sister before me
I am not yesterday
I am not any day
I am a new beginning 
My pages are blank
And you are the master of this pen that I yield

Your action are my commands I write in stone
I offer you a chance
I offer you a beginning
I offer you hope
do not let me waste away
For Once I'm gone I am gone for good
And my sister is born
she will not be me
She will not be like any day
But Her pages will be blank
Like me
She will offer you a chance
A beginning
She will offer you hope.
