TIME ANEW

TIME ANEW
(When we celebrate the coming of the New Year, we have to keep in mind...)  

Time,
My best friend,
My worst enemy,
To my child you gave birth and 
My parents you took away,

Happiness is your gift
Suffering is your doing
You took the bride to church and
To cemetery you led the widow  

Love with you it grew in me
So did her sister, hate
To spirit you brought ecstasy and
To the heart abhorrence  

Success came with you
Failure likewise
You made me proud to feel and
Also to feel ashamed
BUT
Each time you come ANEW
Jubilantly I celebrate
For unconditionally I LOVE YOU 
Because I am your CHILD!
