One time a long ago,
I decided to be me.
Not someone else.
Just the one I am.
Had a grand time.
Jumped and hopped
to the tunes along.
Turned and got lost.
Lots of colors to look at.
Been walking that path
for a while.
Looked up and
saw the clouds.
Where was that sun of mine ?
It's me.
The youth be gone.
Old as the trees.
Never drinking in
the past that was.
Always trying to be
the me that I am.

It is the beginning.
A wish for good.
The goodbye to old.
Nasty a bit this last year was.
I found peace in a lot of things.
The small quiet moments.
A laugh at the oddness of my life.
Who would ever think
that it would be like this.
Today, I clean.
Put this and that away.
A list to do.
I think of the new.
What will it be.
The toll last year took on me.
I am still worn out.
I laugh about that too.
I still have hope.
It is what gets me through.
To that and more.
