    dotsA Time For Reflectiondots

    It's the end of the year now,
    A time to sit and think.
    Did I face life as it came to me?
    Did I from troubles, shrink?

    It's a time for introspection.
    Did I falter on my way?
    Was my Master pleased with me
    At the end of everyday?

    It's a time to look behind and see
    Did I do the best I could?
    Is there anything I can find in me
    That's beautiful and good?

    It's time to look into oneself,
    Did I hurt anyone?
    Have I disgraced myself in any way?
    Did I leave a job undone?

    It's a time for meditation.
    A time to recollect.
    If someone hurt me, on my part,
    Could I forgive and forget?

    It's now time to resolve
    And do all that it takes
    To get rid of the sin and shame
    And learn from past mistakes.

    It's now a time to reflect,
    A time to pray, a time to say,
    "Lord, I can never be perfect,
    So help me on my pilgrim way."

    And ofcourse, it's time to reward oneself,
    To reap the year's harvest.
    It's a time of quiet and peace,
    Of solace and of rest.

    It's now when faith replaces doubt,
    When hope replaces fear.
    May you know what happiness is all about
