1o minutes for the clock to strike 12
All gathered around in glee
A celebration on New Year’s Eve
Bubbling joy in the family.
It’s all good humour: parties and so
But that moment: when all are solemn:
Past accomplishments, even hardships
We pause to remember them.
365 days, that’s 8760 hours!
We end up maturer at heart,
Festivals and birthdays whoosed by
They’re cherished as from 2015 we part.
While we recall memories
Tick! The clock begins a new year!
Yet another, of hope and beginnings
2016 has begun: It’s officially here!
