Another Year

Another year’s end has come
with you not here.

We bid it farewell,
for the new one, cheer.

Tonight I feel alone,
while I shed a tear.

Memories of the past
so crystal clear,

How you welcomed
every New Year,

With joy and delight
my daughter, Dear.

As the world welcomes 2012
with champagne and beer

I find comfort
embracing a souvenir,

Recalling your wishes
 that I can still hear.

My wound remains raw,
more days and nights to fear.
