if you survived this long, long year
emerged this decade, deeply touched
by global heartache, death and such,
if you faced every day past fear
to rise above, a kinder soul
who cared for others, paid the toll,
then you’ve a right to have a bash
to celebrate, to breathe at last,
to take your place as our heroes
full cold moon on ice
shifting dark of night to light
hope for the future
