thoughts on the coming new year

Robin Dalton: a lingering rose

I believe
Life
is always
teaching us
things
miraculous things
about ourselves

always
throwing
opportunities
in our path
for more growth

The Year of 2016
will always be
My Year of Loss

and learning

acceptance
letting go
allowing
myself to grieve
for all
I had been
given
and all
that had been
taken away

discovering
the pain of loss
while accepting
loss and grieving
as an integral
part of life

learning
to resist
to fight
to push
hard
against it

to attempt
to escape
it all

only
prolongs
the pain

I don’t know
what this
next year
will bring

I don’t make
resolutions
for the new year

I mostly
just hope
I end each year
having learned
the joy in just
being me

Still…

This new year
is different

I can already
feel it’s difference
just coming
over the horizon

So
on this
last day
of
My Year of Loss
