I have made just a few New Year's Resolutions:
Twenty-eleven is used up and spent
The months, weeks and days who knows where they went
The minutes whizzed past, the time disappeared
This getting older is just as I feared.
They told me this happened, that time would fly
Between giving up work and the day that I die
Not enough seconds in each passing day
To write all the things I wanted to say.
I thought they were joking, that time would stand still
I'd be looking for things the hours to fill
But time zips on by with things left undone
The "to do" list gets longer while I'm having fun.
Fifty-two weeks more are coming next year
To live and plan for and enjoy being here
I expect they'll go quickly like all the rest
I'm hoping twenty-twelve may yet be the best.
Well - I wish everyone a very Happy New Year and many more of them!
