When I look upon the past
and then towards the future,
I remember the laughter of the elders
their stories and their wisdom
The hall filled with laughter
and children screaming and laughing
The village all gathered together
to dance into the New Year!
Together we all gathered and filled the hall again,
memories of our own and memories to come!
The smiles and the laughter filled my eyes with tears
as I watched my own children make memories
of their own. Happy New Year’s to all!
