Annually I write a note at this time of year,
And the goal not once but every time is to bring you some cheer.
I try to encourage,
And I work to state the truth
Because as we continue to grow more “wise,”
We can’t lose sight of the joys of youth.
So this year I’d like you to continue
On a path set for you and the rest.
It’s a path where your impact on others
Is marked with positivity and success.
I want you to realize how much good you offer
How many solutions you provide and smiles you create.
Whether it’s with co-workers, sisters, or brothers
Your attitude and approach are great!
I want you to feel valued,
And others know it’s true.
For each day this past year and in the year to come
Is a little brighter because of you.
