Perhaps I am imagining it,
But the year went awfully fast,
With the dawn of each new day,
I try new things to make them last!
My face has a few more wrinkles,
Though I am ever on my guard
With Olay and jars of potions,
A youthful look is not so hard.
I’ve found it helps to laugh a lot,
And to surround oneself with friends,
And, for me, the joy of travel,
Helps me deal with all life sends.
Of course, I have an ache or pain,
Acquired in all these years,
But it lets me know that I’m alive,
And I don’t give in to fears.
I see the glass as halfway full,
Or I grab another fast,
For whatever life is left to me,
I plan to have a blast.
I’ve seen the new year come and go,
Both home and far away,
And I thank my God and all the world’s,
For the part I’ve had to play.
So, wherever you may be, dear ones,
May the year to come be blessed,
With all the love and happiness,
That humans can possess.
