Each year that passes seems to smother the excitement, in my opinion. I slept through the midnight marker this year. This poem is deeply reflective and a bit dark at its end. The last line leaves me wondering. Hope the new year is being kind to you:)

|Well, you made me realize where I am in time. But I am in the process of excepting that my fun and joy now comes from Grandkids, cooking sunday dinners for the grown up kids and their kids, giving advice to the 14 year old granddaughter, and trying to answer all those questions from the 2 year old,( who by the way was born on his dad's birthday. So, my grandson will be 3 and my son will be 34!, on New Years day!.....in otherwords, Fee, I feel your aches and pains!(:|

|This is a poem that I can truly relate to. Not so much the gifts, etc. but the emotions involved with feeling to young but too old. When I approached this crossroad in my life, I began to write. You did an outstanding job of sharing your thoughts. Your friend, Kathy|

|Hmmmmm, alot i dont agree with here, but especially "I feel too old for a rebirth" because you are never too old, and you have a fire inside and your rebirth is there to be grabbed.|
|Reviewed by Debby Rosenberg
|i find there is often a "let down" after a big holiday, find your gratitude beneath the waves of downer thought, only you choose how you feel, and can choose to feel anew.
Happy New Year
