This morning marks the first day
Many jump and shout “Hooray!
Thank God the year’s brand new!”
Now on to good things, hopes, and dreams.
Let’s focus on the joy!
There’s so much opportunity
Like a Christmas full of toys!
So begone the doubt! Begone the dread!
Begone all misery and stress!
Begone dark thoughts inside your head!
There’s no time to second-guess.
Focus on the glee
Make a toast to things brand new
And all the wonder we may see.
Shed no tears for what may end.
Shed no tears at all.
Keep your focus straight ahead.
Let the past fade overall.
One final toast: “fairwell ’21!”
Don’t ever be seen again.
This year, it marks a brand new dawn,
And that deserves an “Amen!”
So, gladness to you
And all you hold dear
Why not? Together, let’s raise the cheer
For everyone around to hear.
Shout it out! Loud and clear!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
