So this is Christmas
And what have you done
Another year over
And a new one just begun
Ans so this is Christmas
I hope you have fun
The near and the dear one
The old and the young
A very merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let’s hope it’s a good one
Without any fear- John Lennon-Happy Christmas(War Is Over)
This song to me is the perfect Christmas song,
for reflection and planning the coming year.
No matter who many times I hear it, it brings wet to my eyes.
Another year over and what have you done.
I have tried to grow, to follow my dreams.
I have tried to be a shoulder and an ear, to those who need it.
I have tried through my bookstore,
to be a haven of peace and a little bit of culture in a noisy world.
I have tried to love and not sit back.
I have tried to be good to the near and the dear ones.
All these had various levels of success, but…
I have tried.
For the New Year, I’ll keep on,
hold the ones you love close,
remember those who are no more.
Dance, sing, eat and be merry.
The time for reflection is over.
Party in whatever way works for you.
All the best,
I wish you all peace, happiness and— good loot:-)
**Let’s hope one day we can say, War Is Over**
