365 days have came and went

Another year of time well spent 


2017 was one to remember

All the way from January to December


The memories were shared; and as we reflect on the good times we had

We lived to see another year, and for that we should be glad


Be thankful for those around you; is what we learned this year

Always tell the ones you love how closely you hold them dear


For you truly never know when you see someone, if it will be the last

So say it while you can, because time is flying fast


People will take you for granted, share love and joy anyway

You will find that if you have a big heart, someday it will pay 


And although there are terrible tragedies happening every day

They all put us on our knees, the perfect place to pray


This year taught us that if you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans

And to relax, because everything is in His almighty hands


These 12 months also brought success and great memories

And love & laughter & times we wish we could freeze


Despite the fact that 2017 was one to endure,

We made it through, and are now wiser and more mature


Here's to 2018, may this chapter in our life be meaningful and fun

And God grant us safety on yet another trip around the sun
