The end of December, and January is near.
The bell tolls louder, and how perennially I jeer.
Those same old questions, and no answers, every year.
Annually dismayed, as new dawns disappear.
Let the past be gone, now that today’s here.
Let the future come, as I face tomorrows haunting fears.
Last years sins have been, and totally bygone.
The new year’s about to begin, could be right or wrong.
Next year’s eeriely hovering, and I anxiously worry far too long.
Knowingly waiting, for my angels mourning song.
Let the past be gone, vowed todays final word.
Let the future come, but tomorrow’s dying, I heard.
