Another page is turning now
With twenty-nineteen passed,
Another mention from us all
On how it went too fast

Seconds, minutes, hours, days
Melted into one,
With all those worries, fears, and joys
Now setting with the sun

And as we raise our champagne flutes
We’ll briefly try to share,
The best and worst of all that was
And how we all did fare

For some will hate to see it end
While others will rejoice,
Regardless, right at midnight
Each soul will raise a voice

For old acquaintances we’ve lost
For new who’ve come our way,
For possibilities ahead
For keeping death at bay

Our lips will kiss and arms embrace
The ones our hearts hold dear,
And bravely we will face the dawn
Of yet another year
