I've been visited by the Ghost of Christmas Past
And he reminded me that
Things are better than they were.
In days gone by,
No matter how I tried
I always ended in some kind of err.
The Ghost of Christmas Present came
And showed me how I tend to blame
Someone else when problems come.
Now I know what I've got.
There are several faults
That need to be overcome.
The visit of the Future Ghost,
The one that I dreaded most,
Proved an encouragement to me.
Things can be changed;
I don't have to be the same.
A New Year's new leaf can be turned, you see.
