    HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EVERYONE

    Time to Rise
    The day started fast as I leaped outta bed
    With chores on my mind and duties to dread
    They ran through my mind all the things to be done
    My eyes started to open my day had begun
    The sun will be rising it happens each day
    I need to find time and without much delay
    To savor the good things that life can bring
    And take a deep breathe like a new day in spring
    Look at today as a day filled with pleasure's
    Abundants behold the worlds full of treasure's
    If only we slowed and took a brief time
    The day would be brighter without such a climb
    Scouring my notes for today's jobs be asked
    I planned each minute to complete my days tasks
    Kissing the pup and patting wife's head
    Today would be busy no need to be said
    The sun will be rising it happens each day
    I need to find time and without much delay
    To savor the good things that life can bring
    And take a deep breathe like a new day in spring
    Look at today as a day filled with pleasure's
    Abundants behold the worlds full of treasure's
    If only we slowed and took a brief time
    The day would be brighter without such a climb
    Out of the door with coffee in tow
    Off to the rat race to bring home some dough
    The lights all were red as I made my way there
    Today was no different and I started to swear
    The sun will be rising it happens each day
    I need to find time and without much delay
    To savor the good things that life can bring
    And take a deep breathe like a new day in spring
    Look at today as a day filled with pleasure's
    Abundants behold the worlds full of treasure's
    If only we slowed and took a brief time
    The day would be brighter without such a climb
    I made it to work with no time to spare
    I sat at my desk so full of despair
    Papers piling, phones ring and the boss on a rant
    I picture myself as just a slave ant
    The sun will be rising it happens each day
    I need to find time and without much delay
    To savor the good things that life can bring
    And take a deep breathe like a new day in spring
    Look at today as a day filled with pleasure's
    Abundants behold the worlds full of treasure's
    If only we slowed and took a brief time
    The day would be brighter without such a climb
    Time stretched forever as I glanced to the clock
    Through molasses it moved tic tock tic tock
    As the workday was ending I thought I heard song
    I snapped back to reality O-boy was I wrong
    The sun will be rising it happens each day
    I need to find time and without much delay
    To savor the good things that life can bring
    And take a deep breathe like a new day in spring
    Look at today as a day filled with pleasure's
    Abundants behold the worlds full of treasure's
    If only we slowed and took a brief time
    The day would be brighter without such a climb
    Boss yelling and fuming finger waving with glee
    "Your all working over I'll be back tomorrow at three"
    The day finally ended as I made my trek home
    O lord what relief to escape the pressure dome
    The sun will be rising it happens each day
    I need to find time and without much delay
    To savor the good things that life can bring
    And take a deep breathe like a new day in spring
    Look at today as a day filled with pleasure's
    Abundants behold the worlds full of treasure's
    If only we slowed and took a brief time
    The day would be brighter without such a climb
    Again my mind raced as I planned chores to be done
    I already knew I was under the gun
    Grass mowing, taxi and trash to take out
    I almost forgot the tile needed new grout
    The sun will be rising it happens each day
    I need to find time and without much delay
    To savor the good things that life can bring
    And take a deep breathe like a new day in spring
    Look at today as a day filled with pleasure's
    Abundants behold the worlds full of treasure's
    If only we slowed and took a brief time
    The day would be brighter without such a climb
    I slumped in my chair all tasks were complete
    Finally some time to maybe relax and just eat
    As I looked out the window and up to the sky
    I guess the poor sun never had time to arise
    The sun will be rising it happens each day
    I need to find time and without much delay
    To savor the good things that life can bring
    And take a deep breathe like a new day in spring
    Look at today as a day filled with pleasure's
    Abundants behold the worlds full of treasure's
    If only we slowed and took a brief time
    The day would be brighter without such a climb
