The Best In A Happy New Year

By Bud Lemire

As one year comes to an end, a new one will begin
I think of all my blessings, and I do so with a grin
Thoughts of what has passed, now becomes the old
Things that are yet to come, waiting to unfold

Each year comes, and there's so much in each one
A story in our lives, until that year is done
What will the new one, have in store for me
If it is as great as this one, I can't wait to see

Sunsets, sunrises, clouds up in the sky
Chipmunks, squirrels, and the birds that love to fly
Events and feelings, of the love I feel
Closer to my heart and soul, all that can be real

Like a Picture Book, captured with my eye
I make the most of each day, as it passes by
I snap a picture, and I can look back and see
To a time captured, replayed in my memory

I can look at any picture, and be right there and then
Like a long ago lifetime, yet I often remember when
I look forward to a new adventure, in the New Year
As the people who have passed, whisper in my ear
They guide me on my journey, to let me know they are there
They support me with their love, and they know I am aware

The love of a woman, who I love so very much
A gentle soul, with that special human touch
She completes me in all ways, with her divine light
She's always in my dreams, every single night

Wherever you may go, wherever you will be
Remember to love all creatures, that is the key
Dance to the music, listen closely and you'll hear
Me wishing you, the best in a Happy New Year

Author Note:

Every year brings us so many great things and
experiences to look back on. As the years move
ahead, there is so much to look forward to. Many
times it's the unexpected happenings that just pop up
at any given moment, that makes each year special
The journey continues. I wonder what the new year
will bring this year.

Happy New Year!
