happy new year

ten years ago, i drunkenly rang in the new year of 1999 to the background of Prince
last night, i soberly rang in the new year with one sip of champagne and a kiss with mike
we were in a room with wonderful people
all happy and starting the next new exciting chapter in their lives: marriage, new home, kids
"we're very far off from this," i quietly inform him
he smiles, "so?"
and i am reminded why i am with this guy in the first place
this year, i am going to relish in the now
try my hardest to savor the present
and enjoy every ounce of freedom i have
stars out, heart out.
