First of January is not just a day
to remove the old calendar
and throw it away
It’s the beginning of a new chapter
in the book of time.
ready to be filled in
with new songs and rhymes
Let’s hope that the story
that would now unfold
would be happy and joyous,
cheerful, good and bold,
A new beginning awaits us,
a blank new page to fill
with new hopes and aspirations,
a new chance to fulfill
all our dreams, desires and hopes,
and with renewed courage to stand
against our troubles, and bravely cope,
So let’s look ahead
with renewed promises, zest and cheer,
and welcome with open arms and smile
the coming brand new year!
Wishing everyone a super year ahead!
