New Year Wishes


As the bells chime out again for New Year,
we'll aim to be with that someone dear
to clink our glasses while we drink a toast,
to all those whose love we value most.

And as we drink their health and bless,
our friends and families with soft caress,
let us extend our thoughts to the many more,
that we may never come to know or yet adore.

For all around us are those that we see not,
passing figures on the street or in some shop,
of whose lives we know so little it's true,
but still they may have some import to you.

For we speak to many just on the phone or net,
through business or pleasure do we serve them yet,
not knowing if their lives are lived close by or far,
though this world is shrinking by the light of our star.

Send our good blessings out to each and to all,
be they Presidents or the staff in the mall,
all are still our sisters and our brothers,
wish them as well as we do to our lovers.
