...for we know Out Savior above is making sure everything will be OK this year 2021 and far, far beyond...-ndr
all things must pass...Matthew 24:6-8

Heal and Thrive Far Beyond 2021
 
 
 
With the belief that all things
  must pass
A never ending nightmare
  made a surreal life in all of us
Kept us distant from each other
From all the ones we dearly love
  ever
The year 2020 like the devil
  incarnate
Stalked us in all avatar forms it
  create
More ferocious uglier than the
  ones before
Alas shall come to pass... will be
  no more
 
Fervently we hope in 2021
  covid 19 gets nowhere not even
    in hell (Heaven forbid!)
Not be anywhere never again as
  paradise earth gets well
 
As always in our life we turn our
  energy to faith hope and love
Virtues in the heart of
  humankind a gift from above
Faith in the truth hope that love
  is perpetually there
The  encompassing kindness we
  have for each other
Will keep our faith our hope alive
No matter when and where
  despondencies arrive
Good things we wish to be
  indeed will be coming
As we let  go of all the darkness
  light shines the road to
    healing
 
Upon us is waiting a miracle
  this new year
Our heroes burned the candle
  at both ends successful made
    clear
The vaccines will free
  us from the core of fear from
    isolation
And back with our families
  friends in joyous celebration
 
Not letting our guards down
  we stay safe in our  well–
     being
Try to banish the dark forces
  that yet are lurking
We gather evermore our courage
  at the very base strong in
    believing
Sharing loving caring knowing
  better times are in the offing
 
We continue to ask for
  guidance from above... we pray
We continue to heal and be
  whole again... that we may
In body and spirit with a new
  refreshing outlook in life
Despair left behind embrace
  happiness longed for we strive
That we may be together again
  the old fashioned way dancing
The dances of life of laughter of
  joy of gratitude in community
    of caring
 
Without a shred of doubt
  paradise earth will thrive once
    more... ever brighter
And continue to be far far
  beyond 2021...ever grander
