Tomorrow's New Day.

Well it’s the last day,

The last day of the year,

A year that many of us

Want to forget.

So much illness,

So much misery.

Not going out,

Not meeting family,

Or friends.

And many died.


Was everything bad?

Not everything,

As neighbours came closer,

Closer together.

Helping each other

In these times of trial.


As I walked by My River

People smiled,

We would say hello

Then utter more words

As each day happened,

Forgetting our sorrows,

Laughing with each other,

Enjoying Natures Realm.


Yes it has been a bad year

But we are still here,

And the New Year starts tomorrow

So go forward into it,

Knowing that it is the start,

The new start to our lives.

              Fingers well and truly crossed for all of us.

                'Yes it has been a bad year
                But we are still here,
                And the New Year starts tomorrow
                So go forward into it,'
                Indeed Andy,
                just look at Sir Alan Sugar: earlier in the year he denounced COVID as some hypothetical propaganda campaign because 'no one near him had been effected',
                this week he announced he lost his sister to that same 'phantom plague',
                just goes to show: we shouldn't take our survival so lightly...
                Happy New Year, stay safe

                • Goldfinch60

                  Thank you Mek. May your New Year be filled with happiness.
