Goodbye, and Hello

She is waving at you,
Aren’t you going to wave back?
Hurry!
Before she moves out of sight.
There she goes,
Turning smoothly around the corner.
And just like that,
The first six months of 2018 waltz away.
Look!
There is someone else calling out to you;
The next six months of 2018.
Already?
Yes, she is here!
Embrace her.
Dance with her.
Laugh with her.
Learn with her.
Every today is a new dawn,
Every tomorrow,
An opportunity to do better.
Maybe our paths will cross,
Maybe they won’t.
Either way I will cross my fingers for you;
For sunshine and smiles,
For strength amid the storms
And above all,
To be happy at heart.
