It Happens Again

in #poetry5 years ago


I shake the hands of those around me
We have grown close this last year

I know they are not my real family
It does not mean I do not shed a tear

To know they will be gone in the morning
When the year starts afresh

It takes some time to adjust
To awake clothed in new flesh

No memories of what has gone before
But for evidence littered on the floor

Where did it start
Can we even think when

Before New Year comes
And it happens again


And it's probably going to happen every year.

I do agree :-)
