This year, I wish you a box full of this, and a jar full of that.
I wish you bring home a love-starved puppy, or even a cat.
I wish you quiet, introspective ‘me-time’, all year
I wish you a glass of wine, sipped to a Leonard Cohen song.
I wish you tranquillity, as the
fluffy white clouds float by, buddy.
I wish you clarity, when things turn awry or even a bit muddy.
I wish you patience, not to abandon
your ambition too soon.
I wish you a Hans Christian Andersen rainbow, in the middle of June.
I wish you the mind-space to finish
that Jack Kerouac book.
I wish you a coal barbecue grill, for the times you want to cook.
I wish you connect, even the most
I wish you the wisdom to walk away, if things begin to rot.
I wish your very first crush sends
you a Facebook request.
I wish you humility, cause you always won’t be the best.
I wish your big, blazing eyes never
lose their mysterious sheen.
I wish you’re childish enough to still see a mirror and preen.
But above all, I wish you forgive,
let go, make room and get ready.
2020 has begun its gallop across the fields of time, hold on steady.
