A New Year's Poem

I wrote this in 2008, but the sentiment still holds true.

My Wishes For You
As one year comes to a close,
and another year starts anew.
It’s time for me to share the list,
of wishes I’ve made for you.

May you find love’s sweet reflection,
in a cherished person’s face.
And experience the joy,
of a small child’s warm embrace.

May you get the chance to stop,
and smell a lovely rose.
Or take a walk along the beach,
and feel the sand between your toes.

May people accept you as you are,
and not try to make you change.
This is the way God made you,
so it can’t be wrong or strange.

May you never feel adrift,
without a guiding star.
No one is ever truly lost,
because God knows where you are.

May angels find you when you’re not looking,
and give you cause to smile.
Let them lift any care or sorrow,
if only for a while.

Here’s something to remember,
as you sing of Auld Lang Syne.
One heart holds you in fondness,
and of course that heart is mine.
