The New Year’s celebration ends
As well as the happiness
Here comes the sadness
As the reality enters the business.

Smiles, grins and laughter
Brought by stories happened
During the long time of not seeing each other
Are now starting to fade.

The loud crackling tone of firecrackers
That generated the sound of merriness for a short moment
Is now becoming quiet,
Silencing the heart with nostalgic effect.

Another year is about to start
Which sounds another lengthy time to wait
For a family to unite
As they live their own personal lives.
