All is New, All is Well: A Poem for the New Year

beach view

This year was a little rough around the edges
Cold around the dawns
A little tarnished, a little blemished, a little bruised

There were shadows, true
Grays and blacks and blues
But there were also mes and yous

Life is fragile and fleeting
But I am strong and solid and sold on the idea
That it is also beautiful for the believers

Instead of longing, I linger
Looking for words winged and rare
Instead of haunting, I hunger
For a world of peace and quiet
Instead of wanting, I wonder
How my two hands can help

There were shadows, true
Grays and blacks and blues
But there were also yes’ and I do’s

May next year be softer around the edges
Warmer around the dawns
A little lighter, a little brighter, a little gleam
May the midnight bell ring in your heart
All is new, all is well
All is new, all is well.

Happy New Year!
