New Year's Poem

Wishes For A New Year

I never wish for fame and fortune at the start of each New Year. Only health, family, and happiness are the things that I hold dear.

This is beautiful. It sounds so easy to do, but it's not easy. I'm so broken, so sad.

Brush away old heartaches.
Learn from our mistakes.
Another year is finally over.
A new dawn awakes.

Let the old year out.
Welcome the new one in.
Bury the bad things of the past
As a new year now begins.

Make your New Year wishes
As simple as you can.
Pray for peace and love,
Not for wealth or fame.

Pray for health and happiness.
Pray for your fellow man.
Pray for all the ones you love.
Pray for those who've lost their way.

As the midnight hour chimes,
We leave the old and embrace the new.
I wish the things you wish for yourself,
And may God’s love stay with you.
