As The Year Walks Away - Poem by Obed dela Cruz

As the year walks away,
We gladly part from the past;
Heading to the unknown
Of what faith could only see.
For this we close our eyes
And regard what we hold fast
To let our strength endure
What destiny has to be.

Because what is ahead
Is better than what has been,
All of past surprises
Are foretastes of what will come.
It was always narrow,
The road we travel wherein
We start to understand
The person we must become.

Let us talk to our hearts
To find out what we desire
Let us talk to our God
To align us with His will
So we may realize
The things that will soon transpire
That we may act on them
Before time faints or turns ill.

Keep growing like children
As the skies breathe expanding
Because we learn so much
While we tame no thought or dream;
The chorus of our stars
We hear them all declaring
A new sweet lullaby
Of angels with holy beam.

For if we just believe
What great promise has been told
And reserve affection
At this point of history
Our mind will come to grasp
The wisdom of men of old
Who rose and took their place
To answer what mystery.

Now let us live this hope
That never dies in darkness
But continues to be
Like a shining ray of light
Wiping away the fears,
Removing all the sadness
Until Life’s glory shines
Greater than a noonday’s bright.
