Happy New Year

We recollect the year,

Those loved and lost,

Decisions, right and wrong,

We count the cost

In growth and worth,

Another year in passing

In friendships, families,

All love amassing,

In trials, tribulations,

Fought and won,

All effort poured in faith,

This year near done.

Some hours now

To ponder life anew,

No promises, just

Hope and love renew.

Confidence in

Coming days ahead,

Constancy, belief,

No sense of dread.

A providential one,

A year filled with

New treasure,

I wish you this and more

In heartfelt measure.

Happy New Year, dear

Friends of WordPress,

May all your dreams come true,

Your lives be blest. x



In asking for a favour,

I guess that I must owe

Something back to Providence.

That’s the way it seems to go.


I give, you receive,

You give and I get.

A little two-way,

All answers are met.


Quite simple really,

Not incredibly smart.

A straightforward equation,

But it makes for a start.
