New Year’s Eve

Midnight

is a time before you first wake.

I have not been up then

since your birth.

Tonight

I fed you to sleep, you slept

through the 9:30 fireworks

grandma watched over you

as your father and I walked

hand in hand by the beach

reflecting on the year

an evening enough already.

My first new year’s eve

in bed before midnight

beside you
