Happy New Year To You Too!


It was the 31st of December,2008,
1 minute to 12: 00, quite late.

I was at my club celebrating New Year,
Having fun with the ones who near and dear.

Finally, it was midnight,
People started hugging each other tight.

After wishing many people, I went to the loo,
Remember whatever I tell you, is absolutely true.

Before leaving I saw there was a maid who was cleaning,
I don’t remember exactly what I was feeling.

I thought, that she too would have liked to be celebrating with her near and dear ones,
Having fun with all her daughters and sons.

“Happy new year, ” I blurted out,
She must have been wondering what this was all about.

First she looked around, as if I was wishing someone else,
I wondered if she was feeling tense.


From the warm smile she gave me, I realized I must have been the first to wish her,
And as it kept growing wider, I realized that there was no other.

“Thank you, ” was all she could manage to say,
But I knew what it really meant, and I liked it that way.

I walked out, bursting with pride,
I knew I meant it, I had not lied.

Those three words had made someone’s day,
And two people that day were happy and gay.

That incident gave my new year a great kick start,
I realized that no matter how far way from each other people are, they never really are apart.
