We’ve laughed and we’ve cried
faced challenges, struggled with choices.
We’ve wallowed just a bit
and swallowed our dreams.
We’ve even changed careers midstream.
The worst days threatened to drag us under
but we've still managed to put one foot in front of the other
and keep on moving, no matter what;
because it’s not how many times you stumble
it’s how many times you get up again.
It’s holding onto the belief of better days ahead
no matter how dark it seems now.
So 2021, we count the hours until you’re gone.
Out with the old, in with the new,
and as we bid the year 'adieu'
we hold tight to the adage
that "all good things come to those who wait,"
as long as we have patience, perseverance
and a little bit of faith.
