A New Year

This cycle will fulfill all needs,
as blocks unfold wishes fly free.
Sorrows are healed each passing day,
new dreams arrive in every way.

Exhale “what was”, breathe “what will be”,
allow bright visions to fly free.
Inhale pure hope, feel so secure,
allow true peace to wash ashore.

Rewrite this life through space in time,
fate twinkles bright, sounds a sweet chime.
Replace the old, embrace the new,
positive paths slide towards you.

Joyful chapters come to exist,
inner strength appears to persist.
The mindset taken to step in,
will allow this New Year to win.
