A New Year

By Bud Lemire

A New Year will start, but what will become
Of the people who listened, and those who were dumb
A vaccine on the way, what will it do?
Hopefully it will help, to start things anew

A new President will lead us, which will be great
There's hope for a future, we can truly appreciate
A New Year will start, we can make it our own
It can only get better, than the one we have known

For me, the best days are on the Island I love
Taking pictures of nature, and the clouds up above
So peaceful out there, and healing as well
Crossing the bridge, is like being under a spell

I wish for good health, I'll watch what I eat
I'll occasionally divulge, into something that's sweet
I'll exercise as much as I can, every day
I'll be thankful I can breathe, I'll be okay

As the New Year's bells ring, I'll remember this word
The New Year of “Peace,” like the well know white bird
I'll fly into the New Year, wearing a smile
Each moment I capture, I'll put in a file

Author Note:

I'm wishing everyone a Happy New Year. As we leave 2020
behind, there is hope for 2021 in many ways. A vaccine
for Covid, a New President and Vice President, whom I
think will do a great job. It won't be easy. I'll try my
best to live even healthier than before. I'll appreciate
each day I am alive and enjoy it as much as I can.
