Cheerfulness and content are great beautifiers and famous preservers of good looks.
Charles Dickens


Bless you, my lovely little friend,
Your brown eyes brimming with tears,
Your bottom lip quivering, as you are truly upset,
The world is wrong; karma is a load of bollocks,
Yes it’s another bad year, as was the last,
But let’s just close our eyes and kiss the year’s goodbye.

Oh my sister, you are still beautifully innocent,
Your blonde hair a mess as it hangs in your face,
You study your hands and shuffle your feet,
You look to me, eyes all red,
Asking questions I cannot answer,
I stay silent and hold you close to my heart,
But let’s just close our eyes and kiss the year’s goodbye.

Here’s to you, Ellie Wright,
You smile and the world stops spinning,
Yet that smile Is distant now,
And it tugs on my heart, making it grow,
I need to be strong for you, tell you it’s alright,
But I cannot lie to someone so pure, so wonderful,
I hate to see you blue, drenched in pessimism,
But let’s just close our eyes and kiss the year’s goodbye.
