The Break of Midnight

Happy New Year

Sunsets down of an old year

Golden mistakes have not disappeared

Anticipating the break of midnight

Wondering what we did was all right

In the nocturnal we become restless

Aching for new memories to arise

Eventide in early winter lets us meditate

All of the things we would avoid doing otherwise


Benighted by all the dreams that leave us crying

Fireworks scatter the air and they never cease flying

Among skyscrapers whose worldly cities are shining


Up and away our dreams begin to come alive

Tonight it’s our resolutions that we have kept inside

Starting now we won’t let another chance pass by


Broken desires are lost among the clouds

True ones keep us inspired, a rainbow of hope to be found
