Dear Journal:

Just another day in the life…
…as I sit alone and pensive.
Another year is coming to a close.
What’s to follow I don’t know?
With support of friends who appreciate…
…they accept me as me and expect no change.
I am not saying that I have no faults.
That would be egotistical and wrong
And so tonight is New Years Eve.
I will be here alone, just me.
Contemplate my past year and the new one to come
Ponder my direction, desires, and resolutions.
Yes trepidation too but not overpowering.
Thus tonight I’ll be cogitating in quiet reverie.
It’s true that I am not used to being alone.
Yet I have this feeling deep in my soul.
That my guardian angel will watch over me.
And to get me through that’s all I need.
This writer’s heart and soul have much to share.
Much to do, learn and see this coming year.
No more will she sit idly in her nest and wait.
Instead the scribe will soar and seek her fate.
