Ruminating on New Year's Eve

My daughter just emailed me this: a poem for the eve of new year.

New Year’s Eve is at last here
The final day of the old year
A perfect time to reflect and to remember
The events that occurred across the earth

A time to pay our respects
To those who left this life
A time to remember
The hollowness of strife

A time to rejoice
At the blessing that we had
A time to remember
The tears that we have wept

When the experiences we’ve had
Over the long year
Dance across our mind
In a merry cheer

When we smile and we say
“Maybe I should have done it another way.”
When we laugh and we cry
“Oh yes I did that right!”

So welcome 2012
The time for reflection is done
And with good faith and open arms
We say the words, “It’s begun”

Happy New Year Everyone!
