I wish you a very happy New Year
because I can only wish but I can not
make you happy unless you yourself
want to make yourself truly happy.
Happiness is certainly a seed of wish
which need to exist there embedded
within your own self, within your heart
which need be nourished by pouring
little moisture of love, care and hope
which you derive from others in turn
by making them happy by your deeds
to allow it grow into a happiness tree.
