Backward Glances


Usually the luxury of looking back
is too costly for me,
but this is the time of year
I allow myself a moment or two.

On a beautiful, clear day
when the sun is sparkling on the waves,
and the old year winds down.

It’s good to take stock of where I’ve come from
and how my wake has affected those I love,
forgiving myself for my failures,
and allowing it all to fade into the distance
as I turn again to face the present
and the future.
