I’ll not let time pass…

I see the sun rise

and I am hopeful, inspired;

life and energy flows through my soul,

my spirit is renewed and there is rest.

With these thoughts in words I must write,

and set my sights

 on an opportune chance

for fear it is gone, or recovered no more.

I’ll not let the sun set into the night

on a weary mind and idle hands,

for if time passes too quickly I pray

the moment is gone forever this day.

I want to wish everyone a very happy, blessed new year. I hope the new year is good to you, that the sun will shine on all you do, that you prosper in health, and whatever plans, goals or resolutions you make will bring you success, peace of mind and happiness. JEJ
