Time Travel

For what is a New Year?
Is it here we begin?
Not really a first, more
Starting over again.

We pull from the past
Another year through
We carry the love
And gifts good and true

The heartaches we faced 
Let us leave to last year
I lay down these burdens
I haven't shared here

There is always healing
Working its way
Filling the potholes
We met on the way

Still intact we move forward
A family entwined
Lifts us out of our stumbles
Leaving no one behind

There is no map to guide us
The terrain is unknown
 We step firm into time
Claim each moment our own

For, B & Me and also N & K. And most of all for my K and my C and especially my O.

  4. Happy New Year! Hope you all had a wonderful New Year's

  5. i really love this. have had to come back and read it a couple times before i commented. i'm sure it has a certain meaning for you, but for me, right now, i love that it reminds me to move forward with time and to leave the garbage behind me. i have a tendency to drag it around with me for awhile and dwell too much on things already done.

    happy new year ms. G! so glad we met... looking forward to more snickering in 2011 ;-)

  6. Love this
    "The heartaches we faced
    Let us leave to last year
    I lay down these burdens"
