Like an eagle soaring high
My heart is flying high to have an encounter with you
But be not like passed years
Coming and going with the good, the bad and the ugly
Come with all good,
Give me joy
Bring me smiles
And be beautiful to me
2017 gave us a bit of everything good and bad
Doors were opened for people
Some couldn’t even find keys !!
Some did find the keys but didn’t know the doors !!
Loved ones were lost
And loved ones born !!
And lives repaired
You have to do well
You don’t need to please all
When we meet,
You gotta be friendly to the end !
You cannot please everyone
But just be good
And be faithful
Sweet scented as you seemed to be
I again say be good
For to your peaceful days my heart cries for
And your lonely days I wish not to meet
Get up to meet me in a way so juicy and simple
Make my face forever shine with a deep dimple
Dear 2018 please be good.
