Passage of Time (New Year's Eve)
Shook off the cold monotone and dreamed of something more
Recalled bright memories standing firm on fragile pages torn.
In my mind I hear songs that take me back to that place
The words are important yet they’ve been all but erased.
Remembering days draped in clothing that happiness wore
And the praises whispered softly…and the promises we adored.
Gazed through a golden goblet and watched the bubbles rise
Looked up and thought of you as I searched the night skies.
Do you know that I still think of you nearly every day?
Can’t help but lean on you when I think there’s no way.
Tonight I’ll raise my glass to the sky and look up to the moon
Shed the skin of the past because there’s simply no room.
You’ll wink at me from that distant star, as you always do
And remind me to live with gratitude for all that is new.
I love you.
An homage to people I love and miss very much.
