Last photo of my parents together before mum died.

New Year’s Eve Reflection

Uplifting yet sad
exciting yet drab
one parent missing
other reminiscing
the good with the bad.

Sharing precious time
cherishing every line
of conversation exchanged
feeling estranged
with distance a fine.

Ups and downs
brought their frowns
a New Year leap
forward to keep
wearing my optimistic crown.

I must confess
I can now rest
with souls beaming
love is streaming
and I’m infinitely blessed.
