The days of giving and sharing,
of peace and love and faith,
are passing quickly into the days
of reflection and resolutions.
On New Years Day I will reflect.
I will look back upon the years
that have been, the moments passed,
the memories left behind.
I will not make those resolutions
expected of me, those misguided
promises doomed to failure.
Instead I will simply continue
to remind myself that each day
is important and live each as though
it were my last. I will remember
He who gives me dreams and creates
the world around me. I will embrace
those I love and never forget to let
them know how much they mean to me.
I will listen to my heart and soul, keep
them open to change and new experiences.
I will cherish those who have gone before
me into the next lifetime, holding their
memories close and lessons taught even closer.
I will laugh. I will love. I will live.
I will give praise to Him and be always
thankful for the gifts given me....
and I will always try to remember
to simply breathe, not because I must
but because it gives me time to
reflect and believe.
