December Dear!

It is that moment again-
a time to reflect and realize,
to ponder on pages of our lives
written with the ink 
of our thoughts and emotions.
Of dried lives, blooming spirits
and firm resolutions,
of life gone straight,
of a world gone astray,
of nature's benevolence
and man's betrayal.

It is that moment again-
of looking back on a year gone by,
gloating on success and counting gain,
of being happy or crying in pain.
Of love gained or a world lost,
of losing reason, celebrating the season,
Judging on what one did was good or bad,
whether one was happy or sad.

It is that time again-
to let go of old fears and older failures,
to live, learn and love more,
to give, earn and serve more.
Only a month left to go,
a springboard to leap into a fresh year,
to start new projects and live newer dreams,
and celebrate, 
for it is December Dear!
