ANOTHER YEAR, ANOTHER CHRISTMAS
HERE WE ARE, LIVING YET
WITH MEMORIES REPLETE
SOME SAD, SOME HAPPY
BUT ONLY MEMORIES
OF LONG AGO.
THE YEARS WENT BY, FAST
SO FAST WE DID NOT NOTICE
YESTERDAY WE WERE YOUNG
TODAY WE ARE OLD.
WHERE DID THE TIME GO?
DID IT FLY SWIFTLY LIKE THE WIND?
ONCE IT STOOD STILL
WAS IT A SECOND OR A LIFE TIME?
NOW IT FLIES AT THE SPEED OF LIGHT.
LIFE AND TIME, IS THERE A ONNECTION?
NO ONE KNOWS FOR SURE,
WILL THERE BE AN END?
LIFE GOES BY LIKE A DREAM
WE LABOR WE TOIL
FOR WHAT WE DON'T KNOW.
THOUGHTS STEAL INTO MY HEAD
I WONDER WHERE THEY COME FROM?
SO MANY THINGS TO PONDER
SO MUCH I DON'T KNOW.
I THINK ABOUT NINA, MY DAUGHTER
SHE WAS HERE WITH ME FOR A LITTLE WHILE.
I AM GRATEFUL FOR HER LIFE, SHORT AS IT WAS, I GIVE THANKS
FOR HER,FOR MY WONDERFUL HUSBAND,
FOR MY FRIENDS, FOR MY STUDENTS
OF YESTERYEAR, FOR ALL THE BLESSINGS
THAT HAVE COME MY WAY
THROUGHOUT MY LONG LIFE.
ALL THIS MUSING IS
TO LET YOU KNOW
THAT YOU ARE IMPORTANT
IN MY LIFE AND THAT I AM GRATEFUL
FOR YOUR LOVE AND FRIENDSHIP.
MAY YOU ALL HAVE
A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS
A HAPPY HANUKKAH
AND A LONG AND HEALTHY LIFE.
ENJOY EACH DAY AS IF IT WERE YOUR LAST
AND SAY "I LOVE YOU" Y "TE AMO"
TO ALL THOSE YOU CARE ABOUT.
