Happy New Years!

New Year

Two thousand eleven is in the books
We can look back now at it’s dips and crooks
Like a winding road we’ve traveled on
We can see real clear just where we’ve gone
We can look ahead at where we’re goin’
Maybe help ourselves to keep on growin’
Learn from past mistakes we made
Maybe this year we’ll make a better trade
Take all this time that we’ve been givin’
and swap it for some better livin’
Cuz’ we each only get so many days
Maybe it’s time some change their ways
I’ve taken a vow to do my best
To do a better job upon this quest
To live life better each and every day
Treat folks with kindness along the way
Learn from the mistakes I made last year
So lets raise us a cup and have a cheer
May the cold wind always be at your back
Your horse always traveling on the right track
May your calves get fat and sell real high
May the rains come right and you ain’t never dry
May your loop always fit and good luck at your side
May your horse never buck more than you can ride

  1. Happy New Year! Good piece of work to live by right there. You have traveled much…and the ride ahead is laced with good friends.

    See you soon,

  2. Happy New Year to you too! I love the poem….If I ever do a calendar I think something like this would be a great addition to January 😉 😉

  3. Thanks for the poem for this new year. Also, the story of the baby’s hug was a reminder of what’s important, thanks for sharing that. It was very touching.
    Happy New Year!
