2015: A Year Of Goodbyes

When the end begins
say goodbye
to all regrets.
To the “yes
you never said.


Don’t feel bad
for mistakes
you need no longer make.
You’ve committed them all
if that’s even possible.


Adjust your sails
trim them tight
the ocean’s wide
allow its depths
to swallow
begotten sorrows.


Behold magnificence
almost in sight.


Cut all ties
to your sorry past.
If nothing more
just be glad
it didn’t last.


Ever mindful
eternally grateful
for what has passed.


Belong to no one.
Gather together
all the pieces of you.


Tattered bits
unwanted parts
scattered in the winds.
Accept and embrace
they were you.


Make whole
the holiness
that is you.


Renew
throw wide open
all the windows
leading to your heart.
Release her.


Make all your faces fit
the you
you hardly knew.


Resist the need
to rekindle ties
which no longer bind.


Make room for new loves.
Somehow
they do exist.


Create pockets of passion
allow them to blossom
in intoxicating fashion.


Conform to no one.
Compromise with nothing.


The year of goodbyes
is almost over.
Dry those tears.
Confound your fears.


Behold thy future:
Dazzling!
