January 2014

You, so fresh and new,
We welcomed into our lives
Only one month ago.
You gave us a brand new year.
Now you leave us forever.

It’s National Opposites Day!

Shall I say goodbye when I mean hello?
And should I stay when I really want to go?
On this day of opposites,
Does anyone know what really fits?
If I say what I mean,
Will I mean what I say?
Oh Lord help me make it through this crazy day!
Perhaps it would be better to stay in bed,
And just skip this day instead,
But if sunrise is sunset, it’s over before it begins,
So I shall just play along ’til it ends!
