Dear The End,
I always hate to see you go, even in the hard times, and the difficult years. Folks say to me, often, at the end, "I hope next year will be better." I never see how it could be- not because I expect them to suffer at the hand of fate, as they feel they did this year, but because I love each year as if it were a daughter of my own. Like a potted plant that finally cannot continue in its confined corral, I hate to see the years succumb to the inevitable end. Oh, yes, yes I know, it will be a good year also, and I will come to love it just as fiercely as the present year, but for now, I hate to see you go.
