The New Year’s Eve

I tend to be gloomy when the year ends,
I go in to my nostalgic moods,
I think about what did I earn,
And what did I lose in the year gone by..
I always feel,what I lost was too precious,
Snd what I wanted to gain,is nowhere in sight.
I miss the days of your companionship fervently,
And I long for the warmth of your embrace.
I miss your warm laughter in this chill,
I miss the way we spent those beautiful days..
My time stopped passing since the day you left,
I go crazy searching for you,within me,
You have left me loony and bereft.
I just wait for the year to pass,
And then I wait for the year to begin anew,
I can not get any better than this,
I just hold on to my memories far and few.
I hope the coming new year
will bring into my life some light,
I will have something sparkling
to light up my days and night.
I will spent the new year’s eve
cuddled up lazily in my quilt
And spend the night all awake .
Yet dreaming of a home
Not just the house made of brick and silt.
This is my old semi-conscious self
Which yet dreams of love and its pain.
But consciously I know life ,
it is nothing but struggle throughout,
with nothing left to gain.

    Full of yearning and nostalgic feelings. The poet is well aware of the days gone and what have lost and gain and now have experience for coming life.
    “I go crazy searching for you,within me,
    You have left me loony and berefit.”- Ends with philosophic note.

    I hope the coming new year
    will bring into my life some light,
    I will have something sparkling
    to light up my days and night…
    A deep retrospection of the year gone… but with a ray of optimism to light up the days and nights…a beautiful write!
