As the clock strikes midnight around the world, people celebrate the beginning of the new year

A Year In Review©

Last year this time

I was bluer than blue and thinking about you

This year has brought me plenty

Much I’ve had to work for

Some that just lay down in my lap

I’ve fought my battles

I’ve earned my keep

All so I could be here a year later

To say ha ha ha

I beat you

You didn’t extend your hand

You had no time

I worked day and night

just to stay alive

My blood

My sweat

My tears

Have all brought me to this

A year of celebration

Earned all on my own

I sit at my table

I pop the cork

Though I sit here alone

I own my reward

No one can take it

No one can claim it

I am the guest of honor

In this hour-long celebration

I choose my attendants carefully

I hope the year ahead brings more passengers

This ride alone is not to be desired

I long for the warmth of a large celebration

And for the warmth of a close friendship

That bares witness to all that I am

It asks no questions

And stands patiently by

As you gather your thoughts

And pull yourself together

Your new persona has arrived

And sits patiently aside

It opens the door to your new


Now it’s all on you

So show everyone all that you can do

Christmas Even has been put to bed

Along with all the waiting children who

Have gone to bed in anticipation

Of Santa’s arrival

Knowing he won’t stop here

If he hears or sees anything amiss

So tuck yourself beneath the covers

Put on Your Christmas Cheer

And wait for Old saint Nick

With your slippers on

Sipping hot chocolate and

Eating fruit cake


Waiting and waiting

Till the bells jingle, jangle, jingle

Comes down the chimney

Leaving behind gifts for those who

Were both naughty and nice

After eating cookies and sipping on milk

Old Saint Nick is on his way

Leaving everyone with good cheer

Another year has come and gone

We end the day with grateful praise

In anticipation of the new year ahead

Savouring the memory of this Christmas Day
