As The Year Falls

the act waltz to a close
just as lights fade and curtain falls
to mark the end of the year's play
yet the applause lingers to stay
the heart is so full
of the part played so well
within the script and feel
and the directors' spell
yet a few times straying out
as the soul yearns to break out
wanting to change the lines and cast
go back and modify the past
still the urge to keep playing
many a role that keep unfolding
at work, at love, as a friend
while the act and truth closely bind
much after the dusk falls
and shadows climb on granite walls
the cast and the world gone to sleep
weariness on mind and body creep
look into myself in the mirror so deep
and smile at what is true and what is not
twinkling darkness in the eye
viels restless dance of a firefly
peel off a bit of paint
tear off a bit of mask
tape together the New Year look
am ready for the next act :)

Relentless and remorseless - thats how time seems to be ;
Yet full of hope and full of new beginnings

Thanks for the evocation, pal ...
