Happy New Year!!!

Standard

Another leaf turned,
Another moment departs.

With the past left behind,
And a future to find,
Whatever may arrive –
With it may you thrive!

No ocean too deep,
No mountains too high.

Let’s reach for the sky,
As we now say goodbye.
Toast memories of past,
And the joy that will last.

Put away all the tears.
Put away all the fears.

Let hearts pound like a drum,
Cheering the future to come,
How with a smile on your face,
All of heaven, you will grace.

Forgotten history

Standard

Living in a world full of mystery
Where we don’t fully know our history

We are left full of crazy notions
Of how our ancestors crossed the oceans

Did they row or did they sail?
How is it that they did not fail?

Across the ocean blue I heard they came
A precise time for this, we cannot frame

They walked across the land, across the sand
Did they come this way where I now stand?

Did they look like you and me?
Did they see creatures that made them flee?

I can’t imagine that if it was you or I
Whether we’d make a map of the open sky

With boulders huge they marked the stars
All around us they left their scars

They understood so long ago
That with time, where the stars would go

So precise were their stone device
How were they built and at what price?

Why to heaven did they intensely stare?
So many answers they did not share

Like the rest of us, I can only guess
That’s why our knowledge is still a mess.
