Daily missive for Thursday the 1st of January.~by Peter Forster



Daily missive for Thursday the 1st of January.

In looking ahead we see our past.
We measure gains made,
And judge ourselves harshly.
Ever the critic
Of our own failure,
We examine the pain
Of our loss.
Some drown in it,
Swoon, down in it.
Whilst other still,
Undoubtedly will,
Predict a better year,
And rush into the future,
Projecting all hope
Onto a new date.
When the timing
Is right for change.
Much as you thought it was,
The last time
You played the game.
But this year,
You have set in motion
A resolute notion,
Never to be fooled
By dates again.
But to tend to life

Try to understand
The little things.
A Touch from her hand.
A smile.
A gentle kiss.
Even in the dark,
They never miss.
The sound of her breathing
The things you would miss.
The love of your life
Still sleeping in bed.
So you clean the kitchen
In slippers and dressing gown.
It is always better
To start the way you hope
To carry on.
But with the proviso
You never forget
What you have.
And never look too far.
Not the next but one star,
Or the end of a rainbow
If in truth
It begins and ends
Just where you are.
