Happy New Year

 What do I hope?
What do I dream?
What is there inside me
That makes me believe
That love is there?

What do I reach for?
What do I long for?
What do I hold in my heart
That makes me believe
The world is beautiful?

Where am I going?
Where will I come to?
Where does this path I trod
That goes on and on
Reveal at the end?

It is a new year.
A happy new year.
Thatís what they tell me
As I watch the bubbles
Pop and fade away.

At the end of this new year
What will I find there?
Will this be the year
That I take my dreams
And soar away?
