New Years Poem
Every year the New Year approaches and we wait for it to come. Whether we call it New Years or New Year's its that time of year. When it does, we're surprised that another year has passed. Ah, the human spirit, it never gives up. So no matter what your New Years plans - whether it includes a New Years Cruise, or just a walk around the park, join me. I wrote this poem in hopes that we can take this New Year and add our humanity to others' to make this a better world. A dreamer perhaps, but one who dreams for good.
The Chinese New Year comes in the spring...and in China is known as the "Spring Festival". The lunar New Year is the beginning of the year (or calendar) in many countries such as Viet Nam, Korea, and Tibet. So it seems we are not the only ones celebrating the arrival of a New Year and looking at new beginnings.
It’s time for New Year’s resolutions
When we look for absolution
From the things we’re forced to claim
Whether with or without blame.
Can we bolster up our life
And eliminate the strife
We’ve created by the ways
That we tend to spend our days.
Will the New Year bring the change
That we need to rearrange
All we’ve done throughout this year
To go forward without fear.
May the sunlight bring us joy
So that goodness we employ
As we walk next to our brother
Always loving one another.
Forgiveness fill our hearts
While we always play our parts
To bring happiness to this place
With a smile upon our face.
Help eliminate the strife
That many have within their life
Play an always loving part
And truly feel it in our heart.
Sharing all we have in love
As the true gifts from above
Working with our fellow man
To fulfill God’s wondrous plan.
