Bye-Bye 2019

Written for:  Poets United Midweek Motif~Year’s End
“This year’s end full of trouble and joy, suspense and uncertainty.
Let’s write to each other in this new poem about the end of 2019.”  (posted by Susan)

If this year has brought
you joy, may your savor
it through the coming year.

If you found yourself fraught,
distraught with illness, disfavor,
may you sadness turn to cheer.

If you had a year of loss
and life has ceased to have flavor
may you, with time, begin to see things clearer.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

    One of the best ideas life ever had is Morning, A New Day and a Brand New Year……the days keep moving us forward, through days of loss and days of joy……….I hope the new year is good to you, Sara!

    This poem is a soothing salve that invites the reader to breathe, grieve, and heal unhurriedly, in their own time. Lovely sentiment.
