Hello snow, hello youth
Hello rain in a silent evening.
Hello flowers, hello blue skies
Hello end of all hurting.
Hello January and hello May
Hello July and every Sunday.
Hello holidays and all days of December
Truly your one month to remember.
Kisses your cheeks like morning dew.
On this December morning you feel warm inside,
Wrapped by a feeling of happiness you cannot hide.
You chase your worries away with a smile
It’s been ages since you did that, it’s been a while.
I’m glad to see you happy and gay!
May your holidays be merry, I just wanted to say.
Misty, it covered the city
It enveloped everyone bound for work
But this is December in the Philippines
So instead of frowning,
I smile at the thought that the rain is a sign that Christmas is near
To good health and more birthdays,
To the past, present and tomorrow,
To hapiness and life lessons,
To the smiles and sorrows,
To the roller coaster of ups and downs,
To the bitterness and sweetness,
To the falls and rising up,
To humility and greatness,
Cheers to you and what you’ve been through
May the holidays bring out the best in you.
