Two Thousand and Sixteen

Sun, 01/01/2017 - 20:13 -- EmiFo

365 days that changed my life forever

It was challenging, heart-breaking, and tough

I wish I could reverse time, no doubt, whatsoever

Life had never been so rough


So many beautiful lives were lost

Turmoil in this country was ever so present

To bring back my Pop and Libby would make me so happy, at any cost

Why does it seem God was giving me a punishment?


Then like a beacon in the dark, a new year shines through

With loss comes an end to suffering, I realize

A new start filled with hope and peace, much over due

An opportunity to be thankful and positive in these new days, I decide.
