final week of december

faces that compare
your every move
to what should be done
and the crossing of a border
on the time when it is risky
when you get up and move
because you know you have to
the cause of your last day here
makes the goodbye that much more
and the cold will fade
even if the memories won’t
and a common mistake
is not even taking one thing
with you when you leave
being so distant from the way you once were
and making your next year
the very best one ever
eventually means you need to keep
your head up
because no one lives forever
so this was meant to be
