Happy 2010!

 Another fresh new year is here . . .
Another year to live!
To banish worry, doubt, and fear,
To love and laugh and give!This bright new year is given me
To live each day with zest . . .
To daily grow and try to be
My highest and my best!
 I have the opportunity
Once more to right some wrongs,
To pray for peace, to plant a tree,
And sing more joyful songs!

-Wlliam Arthur Ward 1921-1994

  1. What a beautiful poem! As a newly diagnosed breast cancer patient, I’m trying to live each day with more love, meaning, forgiveness, patience, and gratitude! I’ll put a copy of this poem somewhere where I’ll see it every day. Thankyou
