Another year is coming to an end.
Another year is about to begin.
May the year ahead be another beginning.
Of experiencing love and loving; loving the world.
The ascent is the same as the descent.
Please, ‘Grace,’ let my passion live on.
My resilience and green growth to live on.
Vibrant until I die, knowing not when.
Peace within, peace for others.
May stories escape my tongue in ways unknown.
I pray, I sit, I ponder, I listen.
I hope, I praise, I thank you.
