Happy New Year Poem Hunter


May you wake up on January 1st,
finding that the world has not come
to an end, the lights work, the water
faucets flow, and the sky has not fallen?

May you ponder how this ultramodern
civilization of ours managed to get
itself traumatized by a possible

slip of a blip on a chip made out of sand?
May what you see in the mirror delight you
and what others see in you delight them?

May someone love you enough
to forgive your faults, be blind
to your blemishes, and tell the
world about your virtues?
May the telemarketers wait to
make their sales calls until you finish dinner,
and may your check book and your budget
balance and may they include
generous amounts for charity?

May you remember to say
'I love you' at least once a day
to your spouse, your child,
your parents, your friends;
but not to your secretary,
your nurse, your masseuse,
your hairdresser or your tennis instructor?

May we live as God intended, in a world at peace and the awareness of His love in every sunset, every flower's unfolding petals, every baby's smile, every lover's kiss, and every wonderful, astonishing, miraculous beat of our heart.

A Very Happy New Year to All!

    Waking up with no hang overs of the past
    Of a year gone by too good to last
    And now the promise of a fresh new rose
    That on the horizon doth rise in hope........
