Welcome the New Year

Welcome the New Year

While this last year prepares to leave,
it's Happy, Happy New Year's Eve.
Let go of past endeavours failed,
they're done, can't change, that ship has sailed.
A new day dawns with hope entailed. 
Goodbye to 2022,
Hail 2023, brand new!

So raise a glass in gratitude
for lessons, blessings and latitude
the months gone by have given you.
Embrace the good, seek wisdom due
from all the rest, a heady brew. 
Goodbye to 2022,
Hail 2023, brand new!

I can see that the structure is 3-2-2 in rhyme scheme in 8 syllables and the last couplet in 9 syllables. Did I get the structure right, Judi?
