    I have never felt so lonely as I did this New Year’s Eve
    A deep and hollow emptiness gives me cause to grieve.
    The thought of new beginnings weighs heavily on my heart
    From older, safer comfort zones, I find it hard to part!
    The future looms before me; I cannot change the past.
    I know I’m growing older, time is moving fast.
    And I cling to many memories that were never meant to last.

    Within this lonely vacuum, though, there is a beam of light
    I see it through the darkness on this empty final night
    So I’ll focus on that glimmer, on the pale and flickering flame
    As I bow my head and utter, my Saviour’s Holy Name!

    Sometimes we forget that God is always with us

    I got chillbumps up my arms when I read this. Thank you Vera for the perspective, this is a beautiful poem and a hopeful look towards the future. I don’t know what the future holds, but I know Who holds the future.
    Lovely, lovely poem.

    It was a good poem then Vera, it is a good poem now. I hope you feel that the “pale flickering flame” has now grown brighter though 🙂 That is not by chance, it’s due to your efforts in the past year.
