To the New Year


Toast the end of the year.

Let it shed off its worn brown skin


Let it contemplate all it has lost,

What it could have done to win


Let it gaze at swirls of champagne,

Mixed in the blood spilt this year.


Let it cry for all the tragedies,

For the victories let it cheer.


The new year is rising,

Like a sun on the horizon of the sea.


Let it cheerfully glide forward

Let it embrace me


We shall gaze into oceans of dreams

And catch them like fish on a hook


Then we will neatly fold and print them

In my fresh resolution book.


The New Year and I shall grin at fireworks

And listen to whistles and drumrolls


We shall smile at all the wishes and aims

All the heartwarming goals


Arm in arm we will walk through 2013

Like the good friends we hope to be


And bid fond farewell to 2012

And thank it for being part of me


Happy New Years All!!! May you check off all your resolutions and fulfill all your dreams!! ❤
