Happy New Year 2016

Today is officially the start of the new year
It is January first and the cold weather is here
The Christmas decorations are all put away 
Safe and sound until next year, even dear Santa's slay

Time for the New Year's resolutions to begin
New hopes, desires, dreams, and goals to be thin
By joining random gyms for a few months to start
Only to see one's life partially change and lose heart

A new year doesn't always mean a fresh start
For the one above is God and He is quite smart
Without Him, we would not wake each morning 
He is always there for us without any warning 

It is January first and Happy New Year to Everyone
Let's enjoy twenty-sixteen starting today with someone 
Respect each other, show love and compassion 
God loves his people with grace and passion

Don't take anything in life for granted 
For one day you may be alone and stranded
Take each day as though it was your last
Few regrets and less glances at the past
