Written 1 : 1 : 13


To old Friends and New

A New Beginning - as the old year fades from view 
New promises to keep - or break - as proves so often true 
A wresting from the grip of days now gone - that hold 
Our hearts with memories - and longings - still to be 
Fulfilled - as yet undone .
We cannot turn the clock back for one second - to walk
Through vistas past - how ever good or bad the view .
But we can borrow from their store - in 
Musings that can bring a smile - or frown - depending on
The shadows formed - through Yester's door .
How many would have changed - if hindsight 
Were the gift of time - preceding the event - instead of 
Looking back.
But - no regret - we must move on - as time holds back 
For no man - nor shows respect - for rich or poor .

But we must ask ourselves - ' Are we a better one -
For all we've said or done ? - or will we strive to go 
The extra mile - and give above our due - with generous and 
Forgiving hearts - in days to come ?

And so - in briefly looking back - I pray that only good is what
We glean  - and carry forward with us - in -
This - New Year of our Lord -
Two Thousand and - thirteen .


God bless each one as we go forward together into this New
Year . and may we each draw closer to Him who knows and 
loves us dearly 

with love from Stella x
