Auld Lang Syne

New Year’s Eve, 2014

New Year’s Eve,
Champagne, hats, horns and music.
A bittersweet moment in time.

At once, a look back on what was, triumphs and disappointments.
And then a look to what might be, hopes and dreams.
All in a few frantic hours on this last night of the old year.

The ones who have it best are not looking back, or looking ahead.
On this night, there is only the moment,
A moment when nothing matters but what is.

They grab another glass of bubbly,
Head for turn around the dance floor,
And think, “My god, what a great party this is!”


"...take a cup o' kindness yet for auld lang syne."

“…take a cup o’ kindness yet for auld lang syne.”


About Bob Kallberg

Retired reporter. Concentrating now on recounting Joanie's 12 year battle with cancer, a battle she waged with extreme courage, determination and an indomitable spirit, that, for me, serves as an example.
