Approaching the New Year with trepidation.
Perchance the 13 is unlucky even in years.
I peruse my diary.
More loss than gain
The final sum.
We did have glorious times.
A Europe trip, the brightest jewel.
A writing group encouraging
Mindfulness, a book written
The final tally.
We bring with us into the new,
Not a clean slate, but the leftovers of life
A friend with cancer, fighting,
A friend missing, foul play.
Nothing adds up.
Except for the friendships
born and renewed.
Family times cherished,
Engraved on our hearts
