i don't think that I need to explain anything , do I ? The title says it all ... but I have to say that 2020 wasn't the best year for most of us so I was inspired to write this to sum up such a relentless and unforgettable year ... tell me what you think :)

It was a dark year

One that we've spent in fear

A year that we will never forget

Unlike all the years that passed before it

Catastrophes was everything we've ever seen

That's all what 2020 has ever been


Wildfires and world war memes

Isn't it funny how it all had seemed

Back then, no one even knew

How a year could change our point of view

First of January of the new year

The date when we felt all the fear

2020 was that year

That we no longer want to hear

About the disasters and deaths

About the pandemic and the virus

About COVID-19

About the quarantine


It has been one hell of a ride

Losing who were once by our side

Present in our memories alone

Remembered even though they are now gone

Wished they would stay with us

To celebrate 2021 with us...


A thank you to all of those ,

Who fought on the frontlines

A thank you to all of those ,

Who were there in our hard times


This past year hasn't been the best

Many claimed that it was the worst

But we cannot deny the lessons

That we've been thought by this lifetime experience


We've said goodbyes more than we've said our hellos

We've learned that time is shorter than we could have ever known

Though it was so painful

We've learned that we should be more grateful

For every breath we take each morning

Others wish they had that blessing


So let's wipe our tears

And welcome the new year

2020 was so bitter

2021 might be a bit better

To every person who is stressed 

Let's hope for the best

In the new year , we shall be blessed


=============Wishing you a happy new year to the "You" who is reading this =============
