Poetry Tuesday: 2013

As'salamu Alaikum readers,

It's the first day of 2013! And I'm overjoyed to say my wish for the past year did come true and insha'Allah the same and even better happens!

New Year

As the ball is dropping
my smile grows and grows
I play with my kitty, Tiger
Shadow is next, but she actually has a sense of privacy

My youngest brother is the only one acting silly
saying he's the first to do this
or this is his first whatever for the year
my other bro and sis watch a recap of the past year

I want to hold on to the memories, but forget the past
I want to live for the present
I simply sit back and enjoy another moment with my family.
