Another New Year



Hold on,

Slow down,

Wait a minute,

is it my


or is time

picking up speed ???

Time flies when you are having fun …

Unfortunately for me, I didn’t learn to have fun

until I was almost too old to enjoy it.

Too busy living life I was, never enough time

to stop and smell the roses.

Today I try to live in the now, trying to slow time down

to a speed that I can enjoy, one breath at a time,

one heartbeat at a time.




Watching the ball drop

Time to flip the calendar

Another New Year





Moving swiftly

Weeks, months, years

Trying to remember when





too young to remember much

life was an innocent blur

remembering a mothers touch

memories attempt to make time repeat


puberty, adolescence and feeling

life was full stream ahead

too much time spent dreaming

memories attempt to make time repeat


responsible parent, social animal

life was a juggling act and some dropped the ball

even though most deemed themselves infallible

memories attempt to make time repeat


children grown, usefulness questioned

life becomes rejection and loneliness

we opined we had become a legend

memories attempt to make time repeat


we all sing auld lang syne

many drink to forget

memories and time become a blur

as we celebrate another New Year



ME and the Boss
