When melancholy mixes hope
And New Year chimes ring out
May we all go forward gingerly
and turn our back on black despair
for life without hope is worthless
no future lies ahead.
So we must stir our souls
And imbibe some clean fresh air
We need to help each other
Encourage the road ahead with
A wish that all hands be stretched out in friendship
But never in want throughout 2011.
