Another year has drifted by

Like a leaf from the tree of life,

Carrying away failure and grief,

Disappointment, loss and strife;

Paving the way for memories

Of happy hours and relationships,

Teaching a lesson here and there,

Making way for another year.

Yet another comes rushing in

Amid tears of joy and cheering,

Etching a smile on tired faces,

Wiping away grief in traces;

Another year to bask in the sun,

Another chance to love everyone,

Opportunities to right past wrongs,

Write newer stories and wilder songs;

Search for second chances to regain

Whatever we let go down the drain;

Keep looking for a greener pasture-

That’s the joyous beauty of new year.
