Another Year


Today is my day for a brand new year
A look ahead to my new frontier
Everything appears to be uncertain
Like last year when I was hurt'in

My arms embrace the future ahead
Eyes not shut, but open instead
Excited like a kid on Christmas day
Waiting to unwrap the brand new day

Another year older another year passed

The lines on my face in all it's glory
Tells of my life's story
Lines from laughter, lines from tears
Lines from this past year

Another year older and what have I learned?

The true meaning of unconditional love
The human spirit that is so strong
Rebuilding, and rising above
Learning from the past, that I'm sure of

The path ahead is not straight or narrow
But I will lead my life
With the promise of tomorrow

Matilda told such Dreadful Lies,
It made one Gasp and Stretch one's Eyes;
Her Aunt, who, from her Earliest Youth,
Had kept a Strict Regard for Truth,
Attempted to Believe Matilda:
