Resolution for the New Year

I am looking forward to another New Year
By golly, it is already here!
What will I do to make the New Year better?
I believe I need to write myself a letter
A letter to myself always makes me think
If I don’t do this I may fall head over heels into the brink!

What do I want to do to make myself anew?
I want to keep myself from feeling so very blue ...
Oh my, is it my wish to lose those extra 10 pounds?
I guess so, all I have to do is to “look around” (literally)
I really do not want to deny all the desserts!
Please help me, what should I do?

Ice cream, cookies and cake taste so good
I would love to eat a big cookie now; do you think I should?
You don’t? I agree but how about only “one”
Then I will be ready and done
What am I thinking? That is not a good thing to do
It will only make me more sad and blue
I am going to stick with my original plan
It will hopefully help me find my new man!
