Bunny Chong, Soldotna
365 days fill each year and soon December 31 is here
We say goodbye to yesterdays and look to another year
Then on January first we welcome a brand new start
To embrace goals and embark on tasks with a happy heart
Tradition never changed as we continue to celebrate the day
So grow old with me and we will have fun along the way
"Happy New Year" we say and look forward to our walk
Still filled with anticipation and planning, not just idle talk
Our long journey in life reaped its share of amazing victories
And we will treasure added moments of precious memories
Then there will be times when our days will be hit with tough trials
Where instead of facing the battles - we may choose denial
That's when we should reach out - past our comfort zone
Someone will help us and prove that we do not stand alone
We don't always know what the next step in life will be
Or if the choices we make each time will hold the right key
But let's start our year filled with hope for JOY and success
When you are with me - I will always BE at my best!
