11:59 pm New Years Eve

11:59 pm New Years Eve
Was it an idea, a spark in the American eye
That today glows in the neon of the Times Square sky?
High atop a building, a ball of crystal will drop
Forcing the life of an old year to stop
So that a New Year may begin
And we will share this minute with our family and friends

Get ready, get set
Here comes a New Year you will never forget!
“Happy New Years!” will soon be upon
Then 11:59 will pass and be gone

For hiding beneath her wings
Is 12 midnight who sings
A brand new song of beauty and love
Which floats down to your soul like confetti above
landing like a feather on your skin
Soft and warm it forces a smile or grin

12 Midnight
Has come
and 11:59’s work is done
It has become a memory in your mind
But really they're all just numbers that revolve around TIME

A way that man measures the breaths we breath
Before we kiss one another goodbye and take our leave
From the beauty and the blessings that are this place
Our heaven, on a blue wonderland which spins out in space

BR December 30,, 2017, Happy New Year!
