Another year past in the blink of an eye
Where did that time go?
Toasts made to new family and old friends
Various beverages and feasts consumed
Bubbles, bourbon and beer sipped in joy under the twinkling lights of a fading christmas tree
Memories of a year come to pass
Feelings and predictions about the future
Mingle into an air of emotions that don't translate well into words
Yet here we are
Reflecting another year gone
The end of a decade
Somehow feels like the end of an era
Maybe this year, good decisions won't need to wait for hindsight
It is 20-20 after all
And the future calls
Still full of hope
We listen to it's promise
This year will be better than the last
Humans are an optomistic species
Children growing up so quickly
It won't be long before they join us on the bubbly
Where did the time go?
Another year is come
Another chance to get it right.
I love poetry.
