Lost

By David De Jong

Lost in a dream the year fades away
It only started yesterday
Tears and sorrow for strangers’ dismay
Yet kindred of hearts kneel to pray
Desperate for words to say

Lost in a dream as the branches sway
Missing everything of May
Department stores rid their posh display
Christmas over just yesterday
No decorous words to say

Lost in a dream as I homeward stray
Most certain this is the way
Deep blank snow falling all through the day
Erased landmarks of yesterday
No subtle words to say

Best wishes for the coming New Year to all!

Condolence – to those that have lost
Joy – to those that have gained
Hope – for those that have strayed
Grace – for those that we have prayed
