NYE 2015

i admit i peeked
or at least i tried
to steal a glance
of what lay ahead

but quickly i realized
i had been a fool
to let my gaze wander
from this present view

for what is to come
and what is behind
can never compare
to the gift of this time


mother, friend, muse, wife
nurturing, listening, passionate life
cooking, loving, kissing away pain
inspiring, understanding; I'd do it all again
