A New Year's Fresh Start


Just believe in the New Year; look into your heart -

Time for counting your blessings; then, make a new start.

It is right to remember the good you receive;

Though you're grateful all year, you give thanks New Year's Eve.


For good health, friends and riches, those loved ones who care;

And the gift of this New Year, your heart you prepare.

Like a treasure just opened, though dying to share

Its mysterious content, you just stand and stare!


Like caressing each goldpiece, you treasure each day,

Opportunities beckon to show you the way.

Now, with faith, hope and prayer look into your heart,

Your plans grow; you find answers - then, make a fresh start!

--Doreen (Adams) Ellis
