New Year's 'Eve'
Has She again come Running?
Eyes Shining and a flashy smile Beaming
For yet another leap in Time
Which in any case keeps running!
Her stay is but a short Tease
When we all pretend to be at Ease
Churning still in the same Couldron
Hoping for light at the end of the Tunnel.
She 'winks' at the 'Wishes Galore'
Some from the Heart - Some not Pure
In many cases it's the same old fare
For risking the known - Many not Dare!
She knows it's just another Tick of the Clock
Where all pretend not to take Stock
For Celebrations they all do Flock
Even if many are still in and shouting from the Dock!
She's witness to many 'Resolutions'
Need not really be the 'Apt' Solutions
For Life is always a Fine Balance
Between Different Permutations and Combinations!
She sees 'Hope' dancing in Every Eyes
Some in Control, Some Awry
Many Flummoxed and having given up
Without even A Try!
She sees 'Fate' from the corner of her Eyes
Making a correct assesment of Wrong and Right
With a quizzy look cloaked in Laughter
For he sure knows everyone has grown a Year Older!
New Year's 'Eve' should always see us Wiser
For she's there one second, gone Another
She's just a fleeting 'Witness' we should know
And fold our hands and to 'Thee Surrender'!
