The festival of sleep after Christmas
When Christmas and New Year’s Day are finished
and you are tired and all your energy has diminished.
When all you can do is creep into dreams
of being in a new year
yet having one toe dipped in the past
sleep and dream of happiness that will last
tomorrow is not going anywhere.
The present is all we have
yet we can make more memories of good times had
and they can live on with us
good times to discuss
with our friends who we trust
so start new trends in the new year
make new friends and lets be clear
get some rest for now
because you have worn yourself out
and yet the future is ours
for the taking
whether in dreams or reality we are making.
