Midnight Hope

A few seconds left

I wait eagerly and patiently by my bedroom window

I stare that the dark twinkly sky

More beautiful than even before



I smile



Wider and wider



I shout the countdown in unison with everyone else



I Look up




the thunderous sounds begin

The cheers


The fireworks

Green, Yellow and Blue

Exploding in the sky


Smiles all around

As new flames of hope for the new year ignite

Just for a second

But a wondrous second at that
