Here's to spending this night alone, again.

I miss you

how long will I?

It's been so long since

we parted, but my heart

refuses to except that as  fact

each day brings no relief from memories

of a love so deep yet not deep enough to last

January has slipped into December once again

wherever you are tonight, baby, here's a toast to you

I hope you're happy.  so. Another unhappy new year to me

Very sad. Reminds me of my first Christmas alone in 2005. I cried myself to sleep thinking of my ex-husband spending Christmas with "her."

Dee this rings with an aching lonliness of a love that could not be put to rest. Maybe the New Year will find a new love for that is usually what gets us past an old one.
