On the eve of a new year
I make a list of things
I look forward to in my life.
No resolutions, not any more;
they never really worked any time before.
I list only things that I know will bring me Joy
and hope that my family too might enjoy.
This year I look forward to the birth
of another grand child
bringing the total to four
and looking forward to maybe one more.
I look forward to watching the trees
fill up with leaves
and cherry blossoms galore
and sit under our great big oak
to think about the people I adore.
I look forward to summer nights
with skies full of bright stars
and super moons
that stream their light
through the doors I left ajar
I look forward to
new love songs
that make me feel young again
I look forward to long talks
with my dearest and best friend.
I look forward to the book
that someone is just now thinking about writing
in hopes that world is inspired
and we all start loving each other
and forget about what started all the fighting
These things I look forward to
may seem dull and corny to a few
but I hope that many of you
know that all I really want to do
is to spread love and that you feel
the Peace you may agree is overdue.
Happy New Year to my fellow bloggers
and the folks who follow this blog.
May every day this new year
only happiness accrue.
