This is a poem, I wrote at 1:03am, when the Vietnamese New Year Eve was just over. This poem is written for myself, somehow, I guess it does reflect part of yours.
A year, it’s a lunar year
Way too much to remember
Things happened, things got done
The “Pig” has gone; the “Rodent” is here.
A year just passed, and I sit down to look back
What I have done and what I have lacked…
Love, money, friendship and work
My life was sometimes just out of track.
Perhaps it’s time for me to give thanks
Thanks to my parents who have always been there
Thanks to my friends helping out from nowhere
Thanks to my bosses giving me both sweet dreams and nightmares
Thanks to my darling loving me with spectacular care
And above all, thanks to God for Your Love, Your Touch and Your Share
Here it is, time for my wish list
Meeting you, my darling, when God allows
Being strong, my work, when things are rough
Having balance, my life, when I’m through ups and down
Blessing others, my pals, when I always have lots of love
All these wishes, I keep in my prayers, should start from now!
Year of Rodent, year of lucks
Year of Rodent, year of blessings
Year of Rodent, year of hard work
Year of Rodent, year of winning…
No more dreaming
Now just actions and work
It will come the time for rewarding
Just be patient and hope!
