New Year

Every time I see you
it’s been after a long absence
and I just have to look at you
over and over to realize
you’re here, to feel your presence
land in my body

This time last year
I was lost in pain
anger
resentment
fear
scarcity
the new year is
as opposite as seems possible
from that past

I love you
for that gift
but that’s only one thing
I love you for
