Another Year

The last streak of light vanishes
Another year resigns and disappears
Fades into history of the past
Wraps up in time and lays to rest

Like a driblet of cold rain
Descending to the wide ocean
Like a tiny flake of snow
Melting on a vast meadow

Memories gather and archive
Deep in the library of life
As past resolutions fade
Present resolutions parade

And so the night inches
A new year emerges
Welcomed with oceans of cheer 
The birth of another day sheer

The old man's age climbs higher
With obligations growing heavier
Is time shrinking further
Or am I turning hastier?

A year remains a year
So long as I reserve the fear
To open the door to the other side
Where answers to uncertainties reside

Happy New Year to all my blogging buddies and dear readers. May this New Year brings you happiness and success in everything you do.

  2. This is awesome! My favorite line--"Memories gather and archive in the library of life". That's great writing!

  3. Oh I love the rhyme scheme of this poem. You have nailed the emotions associated with a change in year.

    I think that in the end a new year is just another year. Every day we start afresh be it the last day of a year or the first.

    But for a proper record, let us hope that this year passes in a delight.
    Take care! :)
