Hours to midnight

Hours to Midnight
by Chelsea Chamness

2010, goodbye my friend,
you left us rather fast.
Bittersweet is your retreat,
another year has past.

New days await as we create
new plans and goals and lists.
Full of steam and hopeful dreams
for a year of joy and bliss.
Fingers crossed as away we toss
what doesn't help us grow.
A farewell wave as we brave
the new year's ebb and flow.
As we embark on this new start
Remember all the smiles.
Friends around and love abound
Forget not the traveled miles.
Do not erase the hard days faced
throughout this recent year.
Learn and take from your mistakes
with optimistic cheer.
2010, goodbye my friend,
midnight is so close.
January first we'll be immersed
in a celebratory toast.

Happy New Years to everyone! ♥
