On the Eve of a New Year

2013-12-27 16.20.28With gratitude for this day
for this year
for this life.

May I be open to memories,
good and bad,
celebrating the things
I have learned,
the love I have given,
the lives I have enriched.

And may I let go of
shortcomings I have discovered,
mistakes I have made,
the smallness of my heart.

Let me carry into the new year
only the things I must bring,
whether they be hopes or regrets,
joys or sorrows.
Help me shed what I can
before the new journey begins.

Walk with me in integrity,
in loving-kindness,
in hospitality,
in love.

May I be a friend,
a loving companion,
a blessing to those along the way.

I am yours.
