A good friend, Cathy Chester, found words that start with the letters from Happy New Year that expressed her thoughts (

I like writing a poem that starts with the letters to express mine. Here’s one:

H appy times that were joyful seem past,
A blaze with cheer, memories shine brightly,
P raiseworthy, contrasting with the grief-laden
P ain that blooms from the diseases we carry.
Y outh was full of delight, ignorant of our future.

N ourish our souls with new joys,
E ven when we cannot repeat the past,
W e can stand together, and when we do,

Y ears of pain will drop away,
E ncircled with love that shines from each heart,
A glow with warmth, respect and friendship.
R ejoice! The new year gleams, radiating hope!
