Suraj Samtani (Hong Kong)
A New Guest
You have now invited in another guest.
Look after it well.
Insofar, make it be your best.
That to all you will have this to tell.
It is your new baby.
It is your new life.
Just like how you’re a beautiful lady, and
Just like how you’re a beautiful wife,
I’m sure that this too,
Will beckon you with boundless beauty.
Let nothing else fit its shoe, and
Let it fill you with utmost creativity.
In its presence do get immersed, and
In its presence, be sure to mentally prosper.
Your practise has now been well rehearsed, and
Its about time you donate your past to a foster.
Again, I’d like to congratulate you,
As we celebrate a brand new year just for you.
