Old and New

The old departs like an ebbing tide,

As the new steals silently in.

The old has passed away –

Memories, days lived once

That cannot be repeated;

The sun sets on one year

And rises on a new year.

A bittersweet anniversary,

Tinged with old regrets

And new resolves –

A farewell and a greeting,

A death and life in one.

The past cannot be retraced

But the future awaits,

Holding its breath;

Put down your history

And look for the promise ahead

As the clock ticks,

Propelling the world forward,

Into the unknown.
