The Warmth in Our Hearts

Wishing everyone a Happy Lunar New Year,
and a great Valentines Day!

The delicious scent of freshly steamed buns
on the day of Chinese New Year
The many bowls of noodles and won tons,
and all the dads gather around to drink beer

Aunts and uncles, and all the grandparents
assemble around for a family dinner
Delivery of presents,
and red money bags make us all feel like a lottery winner

The dance of the dragons,
the many plastic boxes of treats,
it’s that time of the season,
everything is just so darn sweet

The empty hole that was in your heart,
the one that felt like a cold ice storm,
is now filled up with tasty egg tarts
and the feeling is oh-so-warm



  1. happy VD .a lovely poem.
    love forever and not on one special day.
