A New Year's Eve Remembrance

Toasting friends and loved ones who have died…


It's New Year's Eve! A time to grieve
for friends who left this year.
Let's raise a glass for those who've passed
as we all shed a tear.

And as we cry for those who've died,
let's also look ahead
with focused gaze to seek new ways
to honor those now dead.

May what we do this new year through
reflect their legacy
in what we say and give away 
while showing empathy.
