As this year ends we breathe a sigh,
And look towards a brighter sky,
The days ahead are ours to share,
With those for whom we love and care.
As this year ends we will not mourn,
For those that will not see this dawn,
The times we’ve shared will ever last,
No matter what the die may cast.
As this year ends another starts,
And though we may have heavy hearts,
The new day will bring joy once more,
Despite what else might lay in store.
As this year ends we’ll rise above,
To focus not on hate but love,
The good we do is where truth lies,
Not what is seen through jaded eyes.
