The Night Before New Years

It was the night before New Years
when all through my head
stirred restless concerns
I could not sleep in bed

I wrestled with covers
and finally won
grabbing my robe
I knew what to be done

This wasn’t the first time
it may not be the last
that anxiousness plagued me
and regrets of the past

Faces of numerous people
whose hurts were so deep
kept haunting my mind
so I couldn’t sleep

The agony of past losses
tore at my soul
I longed to have peace
and to be once again whole

Time and mismanagement
had stolen the years
no regrets could bring back
what were causing my tears

There are so many needs Lord
I prayed, “What can I do?”
“Help me not to worry
I give them to You"

"For the things I can change
give me wisdom and strength
for the things I cannot
Let faith go the length"

No resolution will I make
for this New Year you see
Lord may I be a blessing
and live Your legacy"

The past surely is not mine
nor tomorrow just today
a gift I gladly open
and I shall then give away

For the ribbons that hold
The gift of this life
were purchased with blood
To free us of strife

Though my heart aches for many
Your heart hurts even more
Cries for the broken
The lonely and poor

You came that we have life
And more abundantly
From the pages of time
Through out history

You gave and still give
New hope comfort and joy
Though Satan himself
Came to destroy

You give power and healing
prescious Mercy and grace
The promise that one day
We shall see Your face

So New Year I’ll welcome
but you wouldn’t be you
without Jesus Himself
who makes each year “New”

Yay! You posted another poem, Janice! Writing-wise, a couple of clips here and there but so what? The message of this poem is fantastic. It touched my heart. Well done! Keep up the great work.
