Happy New Year
The twelve-month chain is about to end
Then it will be ready to revolve once again,
That time of the year it is quickly approaching
And at our mortality, we all feel it encroaching.
Sadly to some we had to say goodbye
And then for others we will reminisce and cry,
Then, so many more we will happily remember
At these last days, of this December.
So, I say this as the snow has begun falling
The end of another year has been calling,
Now we will all wait for that new beginning
Hopefully with love and peace, but sadly with evil and sinning.
Then will come the arrival of old father time
At midnight, his bells he will chime,
So, we will wait for both with uncertainty and fear
As we all are greeted with another New Year.
