Auld Lang Syne

Loosely translated, Auld Lang Syne might say, “for ( the sake of ) old times.”

Each new year and more often than that, my thoughts return to yesterday.

~~~

“I can walk along the back roads of my memories anytime:

And find so many waiting thoughts, these shadows in my mind.

The mist of once upon a time will always have its say;

As friends and families gather in those years of yesterday.”

~~~

 The last verse of a poem I wrote, “Those Years of Yesterday.”

For each of you, the best of thoughts for the coming year.
