You came in the night,
snuck right on in,
knelt beside me
and whispered me stay.

Mesmerized, I
couldn’t possibly move;
A cloudy mirage,
with a whispery voice?

I blinked, perhaps twice,
then watched in awe, as
I saw last year’s sorrows
ordered away.

Tarrying not,
they left posthaste,
quickly replaced with
goodness, heartfelt.

I welcome this year
with eager delight
as it brings me hope
for a better new year.
