Another chapter
is coming to an end
containing last year’s memories
of all the times well spent

As I leaf through all the pages
before I write the final words
I’m reading all the stories
rediscovering my former thoughts

Pages filled with joy
pages filled with tears
pages filled with hope
pages filled with fears

But nothing lasts forever
every story has an end
even an unbearable moment
will evaporate in transience

So I set the final stop
and put down the pen
I take a breath and turn the page
and start to write again
