Like candles flickering the last hour of a year that's past.
Soon no more.
So quick it went.
A new year's dawn after the last night.
We have wished everyone a happy new year.
Resolutions half-heartedly made.

We've lived another year.
We know our promises will not last longer than a candle.
We wish.
We will be strong.
Our children will grow.
The world will get on with its usual stuff.
War. Peace. Negotiations.
Victories and losses.
Big and little.
We are.
As we were.
