Away & Stay

As the numbers on the calendar change
The feeling is a little strange
Not because I had a bad year
Not because something was left
Some subtle but noteworthy alterations
I don’t know it is the new me
Or even how much is even under my control
But things start from a very basic level
The people I was partying with last year
The inbox clutter that was
The calls that mattered back then
The birthday I was planning for
Most of the changes are for the good
Sorry, all the changes are for the good
Some things I decided to miss
Others I am glad I could
But still the thought lingers in my head
Will next year again be so away
And will this thought still stay?
