Poem: A New Year

A New Year

The last few hours of this year are swiftly passing on.
  I wonder what the next will bring my way.

Will my choices show improvement - as I go along?
Will I make amends…all misdeeds to repay?

Will the way be clear of pitfalls - in this New Year, ahead?
Only - ‘Good Intentions' - sometimes, don’t suffice.

But with determination, and the will to do what’s right,
my simple pleasures won’t outweigh their price.

Some things become so troubling…that seem to start out fine.
A new year offers hope - a fresh beginning!

Bad choices made in this year, can now be left behind.
With burdens dropped, I could again be winning!

It’s a time for deep reflection, as these hours pass –
journeying onward, through this final night.

I’ll treasure all the good things, that this year has given,
and try to take what’s wrong and make it right.

"Here's to the bright New Year, and a fond farewell to the old; here's to the things that are yet to come, and to the memories that we hold."

Happy New Year to you and yours, dear Junie. Wishing you all the very best that 2011 has to offer!!! xoxo
