A new year approaches, another year gone
Some battles lost, some victories won,
If better angels prevail, as some have said
You'll be happy you had the chances you did
To laugh, to love, to dream, to smile
For family and friends and causes worthwhile.
If these words have great fortune to greet
The journeys we hope can bring us to meet
Together in 2010, then with joy I say,
Happy Hanukkah, Chrismas, and New Year's Day!
