A NEW YEAR - A NEW BEGINNING -2020

"""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""

WRITTEN BY S.C.MITCHELL

DEC  31ST 2019'

""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""

 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 out hearts
With memories - and longings - still to be fulfilled -
Or left undone 

We cannot turn the clock back for one second - as time is
Neither fast nor slow - or walk through vistas past - however
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 
Ever fading door .

How many things would we have changed - if hindsight 
Were the gift of time - preceeding the event ? - instead of
Looking back to life's past shore - but - no regrets - we must 
Move on - as time and tide hold back for no man -
With neither malice or respect - to either
Rich or poor .

But - we must ask ourselves - are we a better soul -
For all we've ever said - or by the things we've done ? -
Or - will we strive to go the extra mile - to give above our
Due - with generous - 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 
Into this New Year - of our dear Lord - as yet unseen -
With hope of days and weeks ahead - of love
And plenty -

So - thank You Father God - in knowing You
Will be with us throughout the coming year -
Two thousand - twenty .

""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""

Many Blessings to you all 
With love from 
Stella x
