A New Year

A new year for all
Just round the bend
Embrace it with love
Let the fun never end

Look back at a childhood
When love was so pure
Dancing and prancing
Though a future unsure

Yet, the memories bind us
To a time when we knew
How to listen to soft whispers
Through the She Oaks wind blew

Riding fast through a field
On a hill top to rest
By a lone Pomegranate
To sit and feel blessed

Watching fireflies sparkle
Under Mulberry trees
Knowing they are faeries
And dancing with glee

To the river we’d race
Against the flow we’d build dams
And the cold river water
Would numb our small hands

The ocean still calls
To relax and amaze
At the blue of the horizon
On hot summer days

Good memories are precious
Never let them go
Yet, keep making new ones
With your loved ones in tow.
