The countdown reaches zero

and the fireworks pop

champagne is flowing,

the celebration won’t stop.

Cheers grow silent

all around the room

as kisses are shared

banishing last year’s gloom.

I sit back and observe

knowing this is not for me

and thinking that next to you

is where I’d rather be.
