New Year Countdown 2020: 5. Year In Review


We now creep to the end,
Of the strange year we are in.
***
Looking back is always useful,
So here is 2020 in review.
***
There is a lot for me,
To be grateful for this year,
But first let’s get the bad out of the way.
***
This year I lost my grandfather,
A man of many talents of much laughter,
A strong pillar of my life,
No longer hear tonight.
***
I caught the virus,
Just last month,
And it floored me,
Something I still suffer.
***
My wedding was postponed,
Not cancelled,
And will still go ahead next year.
***
Now that the bad is acknowledged,
Let’s look to the good,
And celebrate where we can.
***
This year was musical,
With more time at the piano,
And taking up the violin.
***
There was also my book,
That hit the shelves this year,
And almost reached an Amazon no. 1.
***
Working from home gave me freedom,
To make working as comfortable as possible,
And aided towards a promotion.
***
All of these things I am grateful for,
And these are just the shortlist,
Next year will be better,
I am certain of this.
***
Last of all to review is you,
But that is a topic for it’s own poem,
Don’t you think?
