We Sing Auld Lang Syne

We sing Auld Lang Syne,

Drink toasts, kiss one another

Parting as best friends

Is any of this sincere

Or just another facade


I really don’t know

Perhaps it’s the tradition

An obligation

Giving hope in the New Year

To the masses of hopeless


Regardless of why

I shall tip my glass with glee

Drink my libation

Kiss and hug as dictated

Joining the hopeless in hope


This is my duty

As a member of mankind

Which I shall not shirk

Performed with an honest smile

And truest love in my heart


A Happy New Year

And a sincere best wishes

Are my closing words

May it be all that you hoped

And greater than expected


~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~
