the perfect year

IMG_2498a

It was not a perfect year,
But has there ever been a perfect year?
Has there ever been a year
When all the love and health and fame
We wished for one another
Ever came to pass?

Yet despite the disappointments
Of these, our complex lives,
We learn to make do
make better
make believe
That better days will come.

And if we do continue to believe
Who is to say
The perfect year
Will not yet be here?
