To Auld Lang Syne
Here's a toast to Robert Burns, who taught to mark the time
by writing a song to sing each year for the sake of Auld Lang Syne,
for the past is filled with bad and good, the good should be remembered,
and in the shade of Christmas, when we're well and true Decembered,
to gather and to celebrate that we can join as one
and share each other's time is a thing that should be done
for the very fact we can, and mark this very point in time
No matter what might happen next, it'll never be the same.
Reflecting on the past, and on futures still invisible
I'd like to raise a glass to you, if you find that permissible.
As the world begins renewal to the beat of Time's Drum
I wish you joy in what's to come.
