On this New Year’s Eve
I cast my mind back and remember
all who are no longer here.
I think of my Mum and my Dad.
I remember my Granny, Aunts and Uncles.
And I remember different times,
different places and different scenarios.
Each New Year’s Eve has been filled
with thanks and joy, or with sorrow
or relief that certain things have passed.
And as we look forward tonight
we will raise our glasses and our hearts,
and wish each other happiness.
Just like we did with you all
on many a New Year’s Eve before.
