Here We Are...


Here we are, keen with fresh hope
As old and new converge
The old, sealed in yesteryear’s grope
The new, a gleaming surge

Here we are; in spite of life
We resolve once again
To fight anew this little strife
Of gladness, sadness, pain

Here we are; the portal where
We stood one year ago
Now blemished with our scattered care
A scarred and marred plateau

Here we are; with nothing much
But to resolve once more
To laugh, love, learn beneath life’s touch
To God’s forevermore

As I read this (please consider reading it if you want a worthwhile smile yet much to seriously ponder and remember) I found myself thinking...yes, here we are once again. I don't really 'do' New Year's Resolutions and yet it seems this is always a portal where we ponder life thus far and resolve to do better and not give up.

Happy New Year, all!
