another year

¤

today is the beginning, the start of a new year

i am clueless as to what will be;

a future that i am unable to see –

but

a new wrinkle here and another there

&

of course, let me not forget, more gray hair.

¤

this past year has been hard –

loss and pain;

lots of obstacles falling,

like a heavy spring rain

but

my world is not without a sparkle of light –

my children are the stars in my sky shining so bright.

they inspire my mission, my purpose, my life;

they are my whole world and when I despair

their love opens my eyes, becoming my guiding light.

    In my darkest days, I found my children were my motivation. But sometimes, a cat or a dog would do, too. ❤
