New Year's Eve Ballad

New Year's Eve Ballad It’s true one year just ended And that another one began In places crowds did gather They drank and offered cheer There was singing and ‘twas dancing Celebrating the New Year. As a child I do remember This special time of year When bedtime was extended And the neighbors were all there Together at the strike of twelve Celebrating the New Year. And as I grew much older As did the other friends I know We continued all to gather As this special time did near We talked of all the years past Celebrating the New Year. So many friends are gone now So many that I knew But always I remember The times that we did bear I think of them now as I am Celebrating the New Year. Last year we met such challenges Not all glory, not all fun But stood each with the other As we chased away the fear We faced just ‘one day at a time’ and now are Celebrating the New Year. Cheers I say to others As I pop the cork and drink Thinking now all days are special Though life sometimes does seem unfair Still I drink to health and happiness Celebrating the New Year.
