Another Year Goes By

Another Year Goes By!



This has been another year that came and went!

I often wonder, where has my time been spent?


It seems like yesterday, we rang in the new year!

But, very quickly, it has all just “disappeared.”


I think about my accomplishments, goals and dreams.

Do they matter anymore?  Do they mean anything?


This life I have, is just but a brief moment in time.

One day, I’ll simply leave everything fast behind!


My relationship with Christ is what really matters!

Everything else in life, is just “empty chatter!”


I pray that as this new year comes and goes…

My relationship with Christ will continue to grow!


The older I get, I’m beginning to see!

I need much more of Jesus, and less of me!


He is what’s needed!  Whatever this year holds!

I need him more, as each year I grow old!


With each year, that comes and passes me by…

I want more of Jesus, until the day I die!


He is my friend, what is certainly needed!

With him… My life is completed!


Thank you Lord for this brand new year!

You are the one I’ll hold ever so dear!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
