At the sound of the trolling midnight bell
a brand new year will begin.
Let’s raise our hopes in a confident toast,
to the promise it ushers in.
May your battles be few, your pleasures many,
your wishes and dreams fulfilled.
May your confidence stand in the face of loss
and give you the strength to rebuild.
May peace of heart fill all your days,
May serenity grace your soul.
May tranquil moments bless your life
and keep your spirit whole.
Wishes to you for peace and comfort and joy in 2018.
