2018 0r @)!* – What I look forward to…

 

 

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.
