New Years Eve

This is the last day of the year
they call it new years eve
look back at all the memories
this year you’re going to leave

Some you will cherish always
and keep for all it’s worth
because someone close to you
has been gifted with a birth

Some others you wish to forget
but know you never will
for someone close passed over
and some were never ill

Some will be very pleasant
and close to your heart
sit down and list the good things
back to january make a start

So when you feel unhappy
in the new upcoming year
sit down and read your memories
and smile from ear to ear

Don’t ponder on the bad things now
only tears will be shed
for tomorrow is a new start
a new year is ahead

New Year Blessing

New Year Blessing

At the sound of the tolling midnight bell
a brand new year will begin.
Let’s raise our hopes in a confident toast,
to the promise it ushers in.

May your battles be few, your pleasures many,
your wishes and dreams fulfilled.
May your confidence stand in the face of loss
and give you the strength to rebuild.

May peace of heart fill all your days
may serenity grace your soul.
May tranquil moments bless your life
and keep your spirit whole.

Peace Be Around

Peace be around thee, wherever thou rovest;
May life be for thee one summer’s day;
And all that thou wish, and all that thou lovest,
Come smiling around thy summer way.

If sorrow e’er this calm should break.
May even thy tears pass off so lightly,
Like spring showers, they will only make
The smiles that follow shine more brightly

…Thomas Moore

Happy New Year Poems for All 2024

Here again we have a new beginning,
An old refrain to start a brand-new verse.
Perhaps the belly droops, the hair is thinning;
Perhaps each year the memory gets worse.
Yet new beginnings always start with hope,

Needing hope to nurture innocence,
Endeavoring to find a way to cope
When nothing deeply thought about makes sense.

Years come and go; Eden doesn’t change.
Each new year we toddle forth again,
Afoot into a world that’s ever strange,
Restored by some great turning tide within.

….Nicholas Gordon

New Year’s Eve Party Invitation

The New Year’s rolling in;
We’re planning quite a bash.
We need to have you here.
So it will be a smash!

We really want to see you;
We hope that you can make it.
So help us make our party fun,
Or we might have to fake it!

Just bring your awesome self (or “selves”)
And what you want to drink.
And we’ll provide the other stuff,
Including the kitchen sink!

When you let us know you’ll come,
We’ll smile and shout “Whoopee!”
So sit right down and phone us
With your kind R.S.V.P!

….Joanna Fuchs

New Year’s Reflections

Looking back on the months gone by,
As a new year starts and an old one ends,
We contemplate what brought us joy,
And we think of our loved ones and our friends.

Recalling all the happy times,
Remembering how they enriched our lives,
We reflect upon who really counts,
As the fresh and bright new year arrives.

And when Iwe ponder those who do,
Iwe immediately think of you.
Thanks for being one of the reasons
I’ll We’ll have a Happy New Year!

The Year

What can be said in New Year rhymes,
That’s not been said a thousand times?

The new years come, the old years go,
We know we dream, we dream we know.

We rise up laughing with the light,
We lie down weeping with the night.

We hug the world until it stings,
We curse it then and sigh for wings.

We live, we love, we woo, we wed,
We wreathe our prides, we sheet our dead.

We laugh, we weep, we hope, we fear,
And that’s the burden of a year.

…Ella Wheeler Wilcox

Happy 365 Days

Happy New Year to you and your family too
May you celebrate the day and look forward to the new
May you see a year full of happiness and health
May your pockets be full and you will have your share of wealth.

Each year brings challenges that is for sure
Persist and persevere and you will endure.
For success will be found for the one who does that
At the end of the year you will deserve a good pat.

Take the time to enjoy those near to you
And always stay positive never be blue.
The important things in life are never things
It is the relationships we have and the love they bring.

Always be thankful for the blessings you have
And that includes being thankful for your Mom and Dad.
Be sure to thank God each and every day
For with God in your life you will not go astray.

Let your attitude be positive and bright
And always walk away from those who want to fight.
For life is too short for anger and jealousy
Instead live your life with zealously.

Life each day and take the time to see
How wonderful the simple things of life can be.
And always make sure you have balance in your work and play
By doing that you will enjoy 365 days.

By following these suggestion you will be glad
As a very happy new year you will have!

….Catherine Pulsifer

Famous New Year Poems


Have you been content in the year now past?
Were your achievements heroic or vast?
Was every moment put to good use?
Or, did you in some way this privilege abuse?

These hours of time you cannot retract;
History was made and is now become fact.
Did you spend time with your wee ones in prayer?
Teach them of Jesus, His love and His care?

Did you make time to visit the lonely?
A time of sweet sharing they feel with you only?
Can you now say as the year is near gone;
“It has been bright, as bright as the dawn?”

Or were there moments you’d like to undo?
Erase an impression and start it anew?
Recall hasty words you would never have said,
Had you been guided by His Spirit instead.

Were you contented in the place that He called you?
Faithful and willing in all that you must do?
Or were there times when you slackened your pace?
Shunning your duties, forgetting His grace?

Would you be willing, with all things accounted,
For God to keep record, your life to be mounted?
Or are there changes you feel you would make,
If God would allow you to erase each mistake?

The goal of perfection you cannot achieve,
The moments gone by us we cannot retrieve.
But cheer up, dear Christian, continue to strive,
Be of good courage, your faith is alive.

Intention of good will and peace to all men,
A new year is dawning, be joyous again.
Give praise for achievements, though humble and small,
Because of His mercy they existed at all!

The future holds brightness if His will be done,
Continue the efforts your zeal has begun.
Let God guide you onward, sufficient each day,
Constantly blessing and leading the way.

….Greta Zwaan

I Pack My Trunk

What shall I pack up to carry
From the old year to the new?
I’ll leave out the frets that harry,
Thoughts unjust and doubts untrue.

Angry words ah, how I rue them!
Selfish deeds and choices blind;
Any one is welcome to them!
I shall leave them all behind.

Plans? the trunk would need be double.
Hopes? they’d burst the stoutest lid.
Sharp ambitions? last year’s stubble!
Take them, old year! Keep them hid!

All my fears shall be forsaken,
All my failures manifold;
Nothing gloomy shall be taken
To the new year from the old.

But I’ll pack the sweet remembrance
Of dear Friendship’s least delight;
All my jokes I’ll carry them hence;
All my store of fancies bright;

My contentment would ’twere greater!
All the courage I possess;
All my trust there’s not much weight there!
All my faith, or more, or less;

All my tasks; I’ll not abandon
One of these nay pride, my health;
Every trivial or grand one
Is a noble mine of wealth.

And I’ll pack my choicest treasures:
Smiles I’ve seen and praises heard,
Memories of unselfish pleasures,
Cheery looks, the kindly word.

Ah, my riches silence cavil!
To my rags I bid adieu!
Like a Croesus I shall travel
From the old year to the new!

….Amos R. Wells

Happy New Year Poem in English

Turning Over The New Leaf

The year begins. I turn the leaf,
All over writ with good resolves;
Each to fulfill will be in chief
My aim while earth its round revolves.
How many a leaf I’ve turned before,
And tried to make the record true;
Each year a wreck on Time’s dull shore
Proved much I dared, but little knew.

Ah, bright resolve! How high you bear
The future’s hopeful standard on;
How brave you start; how poor you wear;
How soon are hope and courage gone!
You point to deeds of sacrifice,
You shun the path of careless ease;
Lentils and wooden shoes? Is this
The fare a human soul to please?

What wonder, then, if men do fall
Where good is ever all austere;
While vice is fair and pleasant all,
And turns the leaf to lead the year?
Yet still once more I turn the leaf,
And mean to walk the better way;
I struggle with old unbelief,
And strive to reach the perfect day.

Why should the road that leads to heaven
Be all one reach of sterile sand?
Why not, just here and there, be given
A rose to deck the dreary land?
But why repine? Others have trod,
With sorer feet and heavier sins,
Their painful pathway toward their God
My pilgrimage anew begins.

Failure and failure, hitherto,
Has time inscribed upon my leaves;
I’ve wandered many a harvest through
And never yet have gathered sheaves;
Yet once again the leaf I turn,
Hope against hope for one success;
One merit-mark at least to earn,
One sunbeam in the wilderness.

A Song for New Year’s Eve

Stay yet, my friends, a moment stay
Stay till the good old year,
So long companion of our way,
Shakes hands, and leaves us here.
Oh stay, oh stay,
One little hour, and then away.

The year, whose hopes were high and strong,
Has now no hopes to wake;
Yet one hour more of jest and song
For his familiar sake.
Oh stay, oh stay,
One mirthful hour, and then away.

The kindly year, his liberal hands
Have lavished all his store.
And shall we turn from where he stands,
Because he gives no more?
Oh stay, oh stay,
One grateful hour, and then away.

Days brightly came and calmly went,
While yet he was our guest;
How cheerfully the week was spent!
How sweet the seventh day’s rest!
Oh stay, oh stay,
One golden hour, and then away.

Dear friends were with us, some who sleep
Beneath the coffin-lid:
What pleasant memories we keep
Of all they said and did!
Oh stay, oh stay,
One tender hour, and then away.

Even while we sing, he smiles his last,
And leaves our sphere behind.
The good old year is with the past;
Oh be the new as kind!
Oh stay, oh stay,
One parting strain, and then away.

….William Cullen Bryant

Let Bygones be Bygones

Forget! for why remember
The wrongs of yesterday?
Perchance kind words were spoken
To heal the breach today;
Then let the past forever be
A blank leaf in thy memory.

Forget the Old Year’s failings,
The New will have its share;
Each one will find that haply
He hath enough to bear
Without the memory of the wrong
That to the Old Year doth belong.

“Let bygones be bygones” for why
Should thoughts that gender strife
Be nourished in the bosoms
That but embitter life?
And fill this world, that else, were fair,
With scenes of sorrow, strife, and care?

Forgive! for why should we withhold
The blessings that we need,
Or let an erring brother
In vain for mercy plead?
Oh! cold must be the hearts, and rare,
That could reject the suppliant prayer.

Forgive! for Time’s swift pinions
Are bearing us along,
And few may be our moments
To do or suffer wrong;
Then let us, while the power is given,
Forgive, as we would be forgiven!

…..Finley Johnson

Friendship Poem in English

The Book Of The New Year

The book of the new year is opened;
Its pages are spotless and new;
And so, as each leaflet is turning,
Dear children, beware what you do!

Let never a bad thought be cherished;
Keep the tongue from a whisper of guile
And see that your faces are windows,
Through which a sweet spirit shall smile.

And weave for your souls the fair garments
Of honor and beauty and truth,
Which will still with a glory enfold you
When faded the spell of your youth.

And now with the new book endeavor
To write its white pages with care;
Each day is a leaflet, remember,
That is written, then turned beware!

And if on a page you discover
At evening a blot or a scrawl,
Kneel quickly and ask the dear Savior
In mercy to cover it all.

So when the strange book shall be finished,
And clasped by the angel so tight,
You may feel, though the work be imperfect
You have earnestly tried for the right.

And think how the years are the stairway
On which you must climb to the skies;
And strive that your standing be higher
As each one away from you flies.

….Emily Bugbee Johnson

Another Year

Another year is dawning!
Dear Master, let it be,
In working or in waiting,
Another year with thee;

Another year of leaning
Upon thy loving breast,
Of ever-deepening trustfulness,
Of quiet, happy rest;

Another year of mercies,
Of faithfulness and grace;
Another year of gladness
In the shining of thy face;

Another year of progress;
Another year of praise;
Another year of proving
Thy presence “all the days”;

Another year of service,
Of witness for thy love;
Another year of training
For holier work above.

Another year is dawning!
Dear Master, let it be,
On earth or else in heaven,
Another year for thee

…..Frances Ridley Havergal

Happy New Year Poem

Ring Out The Old, Ring In The New

Ring out, wild bells, to the wild sky,
The flying cloud, the frosty light;
The year is dying in the night;
Ring out, wild bells, and let him die.

Ring out the old, ring in the new,
Ring, happy bells, across the snow,
The year is going, let him go;
Ring out the false, ring in the true.

Ring out the grief that saps the mind,
For those that here we see no more;
Ring out the feud of rich and poor,
Ring in redress to all mankind.

Ring out a slowly dying cause.
And ancient forms of party strife;
Ring in the nobler modes of life,
With sweeter manners, purer laws

Ring out the want, the care, the sin,
The faithless coldness of the times;
Ring out, ring out my mournful rhymes,
But ring the fuller minstrel in.

Ring out false pride in place and blood,
The civic slander and the spite;
Ring in the love of truth and right.
Ring in the common love of good.

Ring in the valiant man and free.
The larger heart, the kindlier hand;
Ring out the darkness of the land.
Ring in the Christ that is to be.


On To A New Year

This is the year that things will change,
And last year will be just that.
We have learned from our mistakes and now look forward,
It’s our year to be up to bat.

Money won’t be an issue as we will make more,
And all of our bills will get paid.
We will reframe from overspending and get a vacation,
And last year will start to fade.

Although those memories will start to fade,
We will never truly forget that year.
It was one of the hardest years we’ve had,
But this year will bring us great cheer.

So to the year that will bring us cheer,
We welcome this wonderful change.
And we hope and we pray for a year full of fun,
It will be up to us to arrange.

…Julie Hebert

To One Who Feels Inferior

You were not made for failure but success;
not born for sorrow but for happiness.
Keep this in mind through all life’s storms and stress.

You were not born a slave but as free as air,
in all the beauty of the world you share,
now banish fear and brush away dull care.

The heroes of the world are your true kin.
You, too, have greatness buried deep within.
Give it a chance; no fight too hard to win.

Remember this great world has need of you,
has need of the work that you can do;
and of your visions and your ideals too.

….Wilhelmina Stitch

Auld Lang Syne

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And auld lang syne!

For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne.
We’ll tak a cup o’ kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.

And surely ye’ll be your pint stowp!
And surely I’ll be mine!
And we’ll tak a cup o’ kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.

We twa hae run about the braes,
And pou’d the gowans fine;
But we’ve wander’d mony a weary fit,
Sin’ auld lang syne.

We twa hae paidl’d in the burn,
Frae morning sun till dine;
But seas between us braid hae roar’d
Sin’ auld lang syne.

And there’s a hand, my trusty fere!
And gie’s a hand o’ thine!
And we’ll tak a right gude-willie waught,
For auld lang syne.

For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne.
We’ll tak a cup o’ kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.

….Robert Burns

Thankful For The Day

Happy New Year Poem

Once a year, every year it comes
Marching in drum by drum.
One year ends and another begins
Often time it brings a grin.

Some people are glad to see the old year go
But others feel time has gone to slow.
Some people wish time would stand still
But a thought like that gives me a chill.

You see an opportunity exists each year
To help others and bring good cheer.
Our attitude towards our time
Can be worth a dollar or just a dime.

This coming year live each day
Keep negative thoughts at bay.
Life is too short to live with regrets
Life is too short to live with big debts.

Appreciate and be content
Do not spend your time in lament.
Awake each day and always pray
Be thankful for another day.

….Catherine Pulsifer

Christian New Year Poems

Christian New Year’s Resolutions

How can I use the New Year
To better serve my Lord?
I’ll read my Bible every day,
And be more in accord.

I’ll find new ways to serve others;
I’ll love my neighbor, too.
I’ll focus on “give” instead of “get”
In everything I do.

I’ll forgive the people I’m mad at;
Angry feelings I’ll discard;
I’ll try to love my enemies,
Even though it’s hard.

In the new year, I’ll lift people up,
Instead of putting them down.
I’ll fill my heart with love and joy,
And never wear a frown.

I’ll let go of my worries;
I’ll put it all in His hands;
I’ll repent and try to sin less,
And obey all His commands.

These new year’s resolutions
Are difficult, at best,
But there’s something I can do each day
That will put my soul at rest:

I’ll love my Lord with all my heart,
With all my mind and soul,
And if I do that essential thing,
All the rest will be in control.

A New Start

A New Year is a new start
Never doubt the feelings of your heart.
And we determine how it will be
In our own attitude you see.

We can celebrate the day
but our thoughts show us the way
Do we change or stay the same
Are we looking for fortune or fame.

Think of how you want your life to be
The new year can set you free
A time to rethink what life will bring
A time to see that life can sing.

So as this year does begin
Let your attitude be one that wins
Set your goals, take action too
And then the best will come to you.

Happy New Year Wish

My Happy New Year wish for you
Is for your best year yet,
A year where life is peaceful,
And what you want, you get.

A year in which you cherish
The past year’s memories,
And live your life each new day,
Full of bright expectancies.

I wish for you a holiday
With happiness galore;
And when it’s done, I wish you
Happy New Year, and many more

Tick Tock

I’m writing this in a state of shock,
Watching the clock—tick tock, tick tock,
Advancing, approaching, relentlessly,
A brand new year; Oh, can it be?

The calendar says the same thing, too;
Time races, vanishes for me; Boo hoo!
No, wait! If time flies, I’m having fun!
A year of fun! It’s gone! It’s done!

I now embrace the blur of time,
Because it simply means that I’m
Too busy with pleasure, joy, delight
To mourn the passing days’ swift flight.

So I’m wishing you fast, happy days,
Pleasuring you in myriad ways,
Filled with happiness and cheer,
Oh Happy, Happy Bright New Year!

The Old Year’s Book

Now close the book and lay it away –
The Old Year’s Book; we have read it through;
Leaf after leaf, and day after day.
We have turned the pages, both I and you.

What it has told us full well we know;
Each for himself the story has read;
A bitter tragedy, full of woe –
Alas! they found it who mourn their dead.

And some have read of trial and pain,
Of weary burdens, so hard to bear,
Of bright hopes crushed, again and
Turning its pages in blank despair.

“A pleasant story,” others may say,
“Telling us more of joy than of pain;
Almost sadly we lay it away –
Would we might open and read it again!”

And some have read it with love’s own eyes,
By the light that love alone can give.
While the pages glowed with sweet surprise.
And life were joy, and ’twere joy to live.

But close the book – the story is old;
Lay it away with a smile or a tear;
Written in black, or written in gold,
We open the book of another year.

Poems about New Year’s Resolutions

The Closing Year

How soon the year has passed away!
How soon its race was run!
And of the work I planned to do,
How little has been done!
I vowed to more of kindness show
To those who were in need;
To help the fallen, save the lost,
And sow the precious seed;

To soothe the sorrow, dry the tear,
And others’ burdens bear;
To be more Christlike every day,
And in his work to share;
To live more pure in mind and thought,
And evil habits shun;
To be more careful of my words,
And kind to every one.

But as I look back o’er the past
And view the things I’ve done,
The very work I planned to do
Has only been begun.
On every side were open doors
I might have entered in;
On every hand were sinful hearts
I had the power to win;

On every side were saddened hearts
And heads bowed down with woe,
Where dearest joys had fled away
To these I did not go;
And when some hard and crushing blow
The trusting heart had broken,
A kindly word would heal the wound
That word was never spoken.

Shall I go on through all the years
And all these duties shirk?
Shall I presume upon His love
And fail to do His work?
Can I expect to wear a crown
And join the blood-washed throng?
Shall I, with saints and angels, join
To sing redemption’s song?

No; I must bravely take my cross
And do His work in love,
Assured if I will do my part,
I’ll share his joy above.
Lord, give to me thy grace divine,
That through each coming day,
My feet may ever keep the path
That leads the upward way.

A Year Untried

A year untried before me lies;
What shall it bring of strange surprise?
Or joy, or grief, I can not tell;
But God, my Father, knoweth well.
I make it no concern of mine,
But leave it all with Love Divine.

Be sickness mine, or rugged health;
Come penury to me, or wealth;
Though lonesome I must pass along,
Or loving friends my way may throng,
Upon my Father’s Word I rest;
Whatever shall be shall be best.

No ill can come but he can cure;
His Word doth all of good insure;
He’ll see me through the journey’s length,
For daily need give daily strength.
‘Tis thus I fortify my heart,
And thus do fear and dread depart.

The sun may shed no light by day,
Nor stars at night illume my way;
My soul shall still know no affright,
Since God is all my life and light.
Though all the earthly lamps grow dim.
He walks in light who walks with him.

O year untried! thou hast for me
Naught but my Father’s eye can see:
Nor canst thou bring me loss or gain,
Or health or sickness, ease or pain,
But welcome messenger shall prove
From Him whose name to me is Love.

…..E. M. Offord
