Thank you "last year"
For 365 sunsets and 365 sunrises
And the life that unfolded in between
For the birthdays and anniversaries
And all those beautiful moments
Celebrated with friends and family
Their recurring certainty anchored me
For the unexpected joys
And untimely sorrows
They kept me alive
And taught me the invaluable impermanence of life
For many moments of cluelessness
Those voids were precious too
I learned to rest in my own company
And surrender to life’s grand design.
And thank you, dear "last year"
For forgiving all my incompletions
And transforming overnight
Into a brand new canvas
Hello "New Year"
I am Manish Srivastava
I am looking forward to the next 365 sunrises and 365 sunsets
And all that life will bring
