New Year’s Eve
11:59
Town square


Dead Silent
Waiting anxiously
The clock ticks on

Midnight
The ball drops
People kiss
Eyes widen
Excitement vibrates throughout the crowd

2011
Resolutions are made
Old ones forgotten
Dreams on the brink of reality

Champagne bottles pop
Glasses clank
Toasts are made

Cheers
“Happy New Year,
here’s to many more”

Fireworks burst
Lights flash
Music blasts
Everyone
Immersed in the magic

As I watch the crowd
I realize, this is the life
Everyone living in the moment
No worries
Nowhere anyone has to be
Everyone enjoying life
And I’m awestruck
