Each Year by Diana Pierce

Each year comes with surprises,

That may leave us in dismay.

Lessons gained by sadness,

But joy from special days,

Each year will bring new babies,

And couples are newlywed,

Reunions with the family,

Together breaking bread;

Source

Each year brings its own events,

Not one is like the other,

So tolerate the ups and downs,

And hold on to one another.

Some will say next year embrace,

The better days a coming,

But how is it can they predict,

What nature tends to summon?

Source

Each year will be a blessing,

You can’t forget its best,

Good memories we take away,

We leave behind the rest.

Reminisced experience,

Each year brings out a few.

No more endless guessing,

With no more New Year’s blues…

      Thank you, Greensleeves for your views on the subject. Each year sure brings surprises. Some are expected and some are not expected. The older I get the more I am thankful for every given day.

      Philosophical poem Diana, and true. We make judgements about the year past - usually negative - and always hope that the next will be better. And then when the first setbacks occur, we suffer disappointment, and become negative again.

      Each year is different, but probably no worse than the preceeding one. When all is said and done, we in the West are certainly more affluent and probably better off in most other respects than we were 50 years ago (technological and medical advances, the Vietnam War, the Cold War) and certainly better off than 100 years ago (the middle of the First World War)!

      We have to just enjoy the good things that happen, and change or try to make the best of the bad things.

      True, Diana. Each year is unique in its own way with joys and sorrows and ups and downs in life. We need to accept it as it comes and keep good things and the experiences gained with new hopes for times ahead.
