Bells rang but the room held no sound
Lost where I stood a future I had found
The world now filled with a simple bliss
A new year brought in with the perfect kiss
But with every blessing a penance to be paid
Another false dawn to bright to have stayed
The lies and deceit flowed like wine
Clouding the guilt and the obvious crime
Last words were spoken but nothing was said
Yet still crash through an unburdened head
Another goodbye to someone far more dear
Someones who’s goodbye I shall never now hear
A walk back in time through a childs eyes I watched
The last of a generation a community’s loss
Final words whispered in the house they called home
Hand in hand they now walk no longer alone
Beaten and lost pieces scattered like dust
Held together as always by those that I trust
A smile now graces where shadows once held sway
But I never once doubted they would have their day
Stronger than the doubts, the worries and the pain
With a heart so big it could only ever remain
Life now growing a child’s voice will soon follow
Proof if it were needed of a brighter tomorrow
This year almost gone its time now slipping away
Its final moments can be counted in days

I don’t normally (OK never) leave a footnote or comment (bar in reply) to one of my posts. However, I have spent some time today reading a lot of blog posts about people’s years and have really enjoyed them. I noticed they were all tagged Dpchallenge and I had no idea what this was. So after some digging and a little more reading I found out. I Have to admit I haven’t done a lot of digging in to what people actually do in terms of wordpress the site and ideas behind it but on this occasion I liked what I read, anyway the above is what my year was, well not all of it that would have been far too long but definitely the most important parts. Right, enough rambling if you want to know more about the Dpchallenge or just this weeks challenge which is to write about your year follow the link below……
