A New Year

Blog Photo - New Year's Poem Birthday Cake

We measure a year in months and milestones

Birthdays and other anniversaries

The goals achieved, honours received

And various victories.

These things we dream of, yearn for, live towards

The dates forecast in calendars

And marked off by celebrations

Of our lives.

I wish you all that and more.

But when I wish you a happy new year

I know there will also be struggles

And challenges and dirty dishes

Because this is life.
