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.

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
