Here’s to Cupid aiming his arrows accurately
To lost love being found.
Here’s to being nice (and a little naughty!)
For Santa all year ‘round.
Here’s to friendships, stretched thin from wear
Built up like a house of cards.
Here’s to friendships, triple knotted with care,
Built to last when things get hard.
Here’s to laughing on the couch with a glass of wine
To empty tissue boxes and sad love songs.
Here’s to enjoying the little moments of frozen time
To blasting the music and singing along.
Here’s to getting rich off the tooth fairy
To Fourth of July sparklers in our backyard.
Here’s to tweezers for when things get hairy
And to always paying off our credit cards!
Here’s to keeping our heads up high
When we’re crawling in the dirt.
Here’s to learning how to say goodbye
To letting go of all the hurt.
Here’s to checking off our bucket lists
To doing what makes us happy.
Here’s to a new year with new plot twists,
To a new chapter in our story.

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!
This is a new year poem I wrote a few years ago, and I always love revisiting it as the years pass. I’m sharing it with you all in the hopes that 2017 will be a year dedicated to keeping our heads high, to checking off our bucket lists, and to overcoming the plot twists in our story.
