Just As

Writer's Digest Magazine gives poetry prompts on Wednesdays.  Today's was for a "Just As Something Changes" poem.  I couldn't resist. 

Just As
Just as the whole year winds to a close
Just as I struggle to deal with my sadness (and excitement)
Just as I pack up and toss and sort
Just as I say good-bye to faces I've grown to love
Just as I stand at the ending
I prepare for a new beginning
I celebrate my excitement (and sadness)
I plan how I will unpack and organize
I think about the new faces I'll grow to love
