It's Just Another New Year's Eve


It's just another new year's eve
another night like all the rest
It's just another new year's eve
Let's make it the best

It's just another new year's eve
Another chance to live and grow
And learn the lessons we conceived
From fruits of what we sow.

We should not think of it as special
For everyday is all the same
New beginning for all that is crucial
To change and not to be ashamed

Leave the past and live today
Merriment is for the morrow
Hopeful sparrows need I say
Sing joyfully not mind the sorrow

It's just another new year's eve
another night like all the rest
It's just another new year's eve
Let's make it the best

This is in response to Poetry Jam the sound of music •♪•♫•♪• prompt to use music as an inspiration to write. It's Just Another New Year's Eve by Barry Manilow is one of my favorite songs.

  4. Very nice! When you think of it, every day is the beginning of a 'new year,' isn't it? Each day has promise, yet each day brings along with it the remnants of the past. Happy new year, and thanks for 'jamming' with us this week!
