A New Year Prayer

To those who partied around the world
Or those that lay in bed and curled
up to the one they hold so dear
I wish you all Happy New year.

The homeless sleeping on the street
feeling the hunger and defeat,
May these few words fill you with cheer
may you do well this brand New Year.

Those Women fearing for their lives
battered girlfriends, battered wives,
Husbands, boyfriends, living in fear
pray Lord protect them this New Year

For Nurses with devoted ways
caring for someone's final days,
Stay strong no matter how severe
love is your gift in this New year.

For Police protecting us each day
hand them the torch to light our way,
To face the foe showing no fear
we wish them all a safe New Year

That Fireman risking life and limb
Daily, facing scenes so grim,
those burning buildings hold no fear
May God be with him this New year.

Those soldiers in the line of fire
living life close to the wire
From Private to the Brigadier
May God protect you this New Year.

For those alone, without a friend
I hope your darkness soon will end,
Your guiding light is close - so near
may friendship find you this New Year.

Talk to your friends don't text them all
speak face to face without phone call.
Make pals feel wanted, keep them near
make them happy this brand New Year.

Those people who've lost faith, like me
who have no other Deity
May churchfolk comfort them - endear
restore their faith in this New Year.

Around the World we should link hands
North, South, East, West to all Gods lands,
Should learn to live in love - not fear
let's make this year a brave New Year.
