A New Year

A New Year

A New Year
with no new hopes
nor dreams
or resolutions

What could I even revolve myself to do
what hope wouldn’t be smashed in the light of day
what dream wouldn’t wake up into the reality of what is

No this is not a new year
even though the calendar will read 2003
this will continue to be the first year without
our little Jamie boy

A year reflected on what was
Contrasted with what will never be again
Not a new beginning
but a new end
