The Golden Year

How fulgent heaven's eye doth shine Glistening warmly from the skies. No bitter thoughts of life confines My heart to bid to hope goodbyes. For in the darkest cave of sorrows Hope will lead me through my days. Like clouds - away from me blows The dashed dreams of yesterday. My prayers will labor not in vain For love may grace my misty days. Dreams the golden prize I'd claim In life's ever daunting pathways. This new born year I claim as mine The sorrowing songs of life will mute No dread may turn my heart repine Or shape the splendor of my youth.
''If you can imagine it, You can achieve it; If you can dream it, You can become it.'' William Arthur Ward
