My New Year Verse

My joys depend on more than years.
I measure it by those lilting laughter
Or the rolling swell of bittersweet tears
I live in the light of all of life's journeys,
And all my moments, I gather to a wave.

Then life hands the gift of another year,
A new crest on which my hope must ride
It is the present, here, now -- quickly !
Let us not tarry, move on to our true destiny.

Life turns as it will, year after year
Though the dephts of the ocean lie still
Here I stand, between the future and the past
Where memories of the waves we made will never last!
