To a lap around the sun

To heartache and lost friends,
dreams shattered and clans broken;
To new friends and old cities,
farewells and new greetings;
To festivals and getting lost,
inside my head and on a bike;
To selling all I had and then
having the rest taken;
To quitting a job I hated,
and stumbling into a passion;
To leaving a city I love,
only to find another home;
To continue on this aimless,
yet directed journey;
So long to a lap around the sun
that taught me more than I asked for;
To know that tomorrow
only the calendar changes;
To remember that every day
is what I make of it.

Flattr this!
