Happy New Year -

- is it time for us to say
as the old year has gently faded away

a year is like life, with good days and bad
with laughter and joy, some sad and some mad

still all of them moments that reminds you that
- you are alive and that you really can let -

- bad things be, and just move on
live again, dare to love, to be strong

and that is the magic of life, my friend
we will all keep on going till the end

and we will carry with us our life untill now
that's our luggage: moments and people we know

on a mountaintop, in the arms of your dear
or alone in a safe place, or to face your big fear

or wherever you wish with whoever you want
that is freedom, and no one can tell you "you can't"

because only you own your life, every step of the way
every dull daily minute, every weekend and holiday

so dear reader, I wish you all the best for the new year to be
and thank you for having read my simple 2016 poetry

and maybe I'll write a few more in this year as well,
ops, I guess I already did. If you like them that's swell
( - and if you don't, that's ok too
it will stay between me and you:-) )

No matter what:
I really wish you all the best for 2017. Freedom is being You. Be you!

  13. Dearest Eli,
    Indeed, we all started a brand new year and we hope the very best of it. Just got over my bad cold and bronchitis but life looks better already. Tuesday we start again choir practice and work hard for our Revue at the local theatre in May.
    Life has many fond moments and those memories we highlight and carry over. The rest we let go, like the trees shed their old leaves... We all must learn from nature!
    Hugs and wishing and your love a Happy 2017!
    Mariette
