A New Year
The tree stood still,
the lights twinkling ,
waiting for a new chapter to unfold.
We feasted on the lobster plates,
I bought long ago for a night like this,
filled with gratitude for our children,
for our life.
Savoring the moment,
we sang songs off the iPod shuffle,
while drinking champagne.
The television on mute to rock & roll eve
in New York city.
Commercials bombarded on weight loss
and exercise equipment.
Our dog waged her tail as we danced ,
we laughed forgetting words to songs,
we knew long ago.
Stars in our eyes,
sweet alcohol on our breath,
tomorrow lies here between us,
as your arms lace into mine.
