In hope for a new year


Summerís Light in Winterís Night

Finding Summerís light in Winterís night
Seeking the warmth of friends at year-endís sight
Longing for the smile of my heartís delight
Reaching out for peace and to make things right
Hoping to begin, again, to see a future bright

The leaving of past to present make
A hope of life, in each breath I take.
