another milestone has been passed
and the last page of the book we dared to read
has been turned over to another calendar
promises of the four seasons of the past year
all gathered like a wave and passed in a rolling swell of tears
they are passions too immense to name in songs

now poised between the future and the past
we each await what course Dzogbese may bring
as if the New Year is a crest on which to sing
and winds that never touched the things of last year
will turn and turn in grace with a whisper
of life and love for every soul wandering in grief and pain
that the dawn of the new Year is a festival to keep

on village lanes are blossoms of the Old Year's crown
it blooms with ashes of the dead and in many homes
it is to find sweet pace where they leave strife
their thirst may be bitter and unslaked but the hope
allows the soul to dance with dreams for another season

on the last page where their dreams rocked here and there
they will find another plane of existence singing songs
to a new audience appreciative of their talent and passion
and when the village assembles again we will hear a new song
that never a Night was such a change brought in their lives

(Dzogbese means God, or Fate in the Ewe language from Ghana)
