I'm rather good with "hello's" though and "nice to meet you's" and "how do you do's".
So what does one like me do, on a night like this? Wishes would be most appropriate, I would think.
I wish for love. For all of us. That we may feel it, that we may treasure it, that we may realize its goodness. I wish for the healing of heartaches and for the mending of persistent wounds.
I wish for kisses, those shared under the night sky and those shared in secret. I wish for that heart-stopping moment when one tells you that he is yours.
I wish for laughter, that we may always share it as well as have it inside our hearts. I wish for those moments that we could surrender everything to laughter. Do you remember those?
I wish for dreams, that we may never run out of them, that we may always see them and never let them out of our sight. Both the dreams we see with our eyes closed and those we see with our eyes wide open.
I wish for sunny days spent outside and rainy days spent at home.
I wish for conversations, for they give us the opportunity to stand up to what we believe in. I wish for conversations that inspire minds, that ignite feelings, that stir hidden emotions.
Most of all, I wish for happiness. Don't we all? May we, in our search for it, not hurt other people to find it. May we find happiness in being where we are and being who we are. May we learn to be happy and realize that happiness is not something that happens to you. That it is something we find, something we take, something we fight for.
Hello New Year. I think I'm ready for you. No, wait. Obie and I are ready for you. :) Because Last Last Year has given him to me and now I am not alone to face you and neither will he be alone to face you. Let's do this, New Year.
