Another Year Gone;


Another year completed in a life full of love,

That love for life that has been with you forever.

You look back over that life

And see the ups and downs,

The downs can be so sad and melancholy.

But as you look back the ups are so fulfilling

Bringing each new day and each new year

To this place,

This place where you arrive today,

That day of your birthday.

Another year now gone

But still plenty more to come.

      A fine write Gold.
      I thought it was about me - 'still plenty more to come'. We've had birthdays since at least least before 1066!

        And thousands of years before that!!
