New life

New job, new home, new town, new life

New people, traffic, technology strife

New horizons with an old head, difficult to please

New issues and problems one could not conceive

Electric, gas and water demands

New address changes affecting long term plans

New colleagues, new friends new possibilities abound

The atmosphere, the shopping, the strange new sound

Now you sit reflecting on the old past lost

Was it worth all the changing, the challenging, the cost

Missing the old and bemoaning the new

One of the family, now one of the few

Now you are settling, the life has begun

Finding singing comrades to start the fun

Getting to know new people, new spaces, new games

Suddenly the new life, is your life, one in the same.
