The New Year has Began

The countdown has began 5,4,3,2,and one ,ring the bell
Here opens the door to unveil the shades of the past
The new year has come to our rescue ,my angel

By physical apperance and in maturity level
We all grow and still grow with each new year
The countdown has began 5 ,4,3,2,and one,ring the bell

Age knew no bounds to express joy ,we pray to impel
Opening arms wide to the opportunity that's ahead
The new year has come to our rescue,my angel

To learn and to forget the good and the bad to excel
We are ready to unveil the new years screen aside
The countdown has began 5 ,4,3,2,and one,ring the bell

There is no end to anything in this world in wheel
Each thing moves on a circle to continue again anew
The new year has come to our rescue,my angel

Believe in the oneness as we welcome 1-1-11 to laurel
For to carry us along with it to spread joy in and out of each heart 
The new year has come to our rescue, my angel
The countdown has began 5 ,4,3,2,and one,ring the bell

Wishing You All A Happy New Year !

    I added your link in to nominate, we have about more than 500 poets in our community, I never intend to upset or ignore, but fall short of time and energy in nominating all and every single one of them... if a poet ask, I will add,
