New Year's Eve (2012)
And so, my friends, another year has passed,
Over which I will not shed a tear,
For 2012 has been a blast,
And I wish you all a Happy New Year!
On this last day of 2012,
I look forward and back, caught in between,
But to be honest I do find myself,
Embracing year 2013.
There has been both happiness and pain,
But tonight is time for wine and song,
So c'mon let's dance, and pop the champagne,
2013 - bring it on!
I know that we live in different time zones,
But at midnight I'll be thinking of you,
The temple bells will sound their dulcet tones,
As we raise our glasses to hearts so true.
But let's not wear our hearts on our sleeve,
Let's put behind us whatever has been,
And enjoy this night, this New Year's Eve,
Happy New Year - 2013!
