The NextNew Year
Barely remembering the last new year
as every day went by so quickly
though it seemed so slowly at the time
and the days are blending together
as time passes by, turning, leaving
the people we lost, the people we left,
falling off like the pictures on the wall,
nothing will ever be the same here
as lives we knew change and leave
but let's just forget about everything
start counting down the next new year.
Author's Note: "How happy is the blameless vestal's lot! The world forgetting, by the world forgot. Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind! Each pray'r accepted, and each wish resign'd." Another assignment and this time it was to reflect on the previous year. So yeah, I like to forget the previous year.
