What is the importance of a final day-
a farewell to the old?
the stereotypical hello to the new?
what does it mean to move forward
or back,
like the tick of the clock,
the sway of the wind,
the rising of the sun?
what must we make of it,
and do we have a choice?
what questions need to be asked of the past,
in order to give the present thought, and
in order to make the future think twice-
what is a last day but another attempt
at a beginning-
one turns to two,
night turns to day,
seeds blossom,
seasons blend,
life will flower,
thrive,
dwindle,
and then dim-
whatever tomorrow is, it will come-
whatever tomorrow brings must be accepted
with open arms-
whatever must be done, must be done
moving forward*
