“Disappoint” is an appropriate word for this year,
a word I’ve grown weary of considering.
I would much rather write of hope, joy, and cheer,
of moments and times worth remembering.
But life holds much more than wonderful news
or goals achieved or a glorious view,
and in the valley of failures and tears
I find I’ve drawn closer to You.
