Happy new year Mum xxx

A new year dawns, brings hope and tears
Looking back through all those years
The first without you, its noticeable
But I will be as positive as I am able

I’m sat here thinking of years gone by
as I try hard not to focus on the question, why
memories my head abound
pictures of your face dance around

Happy times, as you walked me to school
laughing at dad playing the fool
presents at Christmas, most of them won
but given with love and wrapped in fun

I know this new year you would be looking skyward
head held high and best foot forward
cheeky twinkling eyes, smile on your face
of your MS problems there shows no trace

So there you go its true and clear
I’ve listened well and learnt my dear
that no matter what life offers to you
take it gratefully and to your heart be true

So its new years eve and we say goodbye
2015, one drenched in tears I cannot lie
but to 2016, I fill and raise my cup
never look down, always look up

Happy new year Mum and to all those I love and who love me back <3
