Happy New Year’s Day

The streamers are strung and poppers are popped,

the firecrackers are out and they are dancing hot.

Cone hats all donned and champagne chilled nearby,

Goofy dancing and laughing without needing to worry quite why.

I wish you a Good Year with all of my might,

And now that we’ve been festive, I wish you good night.

Coffee Shop Smiles

Everyday at the cafe

She stops for a break before she takes on the world

and conquers the day

And sometimes in line she stops and smiles at the girl who stands in front

And sometimes they sit at the same table

And sometimes they sit and they talk.

Everyday two people connected by this one coffee shop.

And today she remembered her birthday and brought a flower bouqet

And it’s a great reminder that sometimes, even when they are all too busy, sisters can be great.

A Quiet Place

Lights shining in a quiet place

At a time when the flowers spring through the leaf litter

And there’s no need to fall in love here

No need to worry about anyone else

Until she must face the end of night

And return to the real world inside

But for now she can be herself in the quiet of the night

And let her stress go free

Congratulations

Worked hard at a great job

A wonderful job,

But my dream was still to write full time

And when my contract was done I knew my time had once again come

So we amicably parted ways

And everyone expressed regret to see me go.

All except for one-

Who congratulated me on taking the chance to move

forward into the path I wanted to move toward

And it felt nice to remember this wasn’t an ending,

But the start of yet another adventure.

And to be reminded that this wasn’t goodbye,

But congratulations.

A Little Love is Worth a Lot

pexels-photo-207962

A little love is worth a lot

Because even a little is better than none.

And no one has quite an idea of what they’ve wrought

When a person who had no one,

suddenly has a someone.

And you don’t need to have romance in your heart,

Just to care about someone is quite enough-

After all, there are many kinds of love,

But to survive a person needs to receive at least one.
