Bearing calmly the soft suffering
The pain of letting go; eyeing its unborn
With keen anticipation and hope
2016 stands pregnant; pot-bellied
And fertile, ready to give birth
To months, days, hours, moments
Let it relax and breathe deep!
Let it be an easy birth!
Let all babies glide forth!
Would they be stillborn, or bubbling
With life; hungry and crying
For more joy, feats new evermore?
Merry months, delightful days
Happy hours, beautiful moments
The essence of our very being
Once cuddled and well-fed
They will lie peacefully, to grow
Gently cradled within our lives

Wish you all a very Happy New Year 2016!
