#12- Countdown

Loud music bouncing off the walls

Happiness radiating from each person

Contagious laughter and genuine smiles

Everyone she loved gathered in a room

As she stood on the sidelines and watched

Her smile only grew wider

Her face lighting up with glee

The sun had long set

But the party hadn’t died down yet

‘Ten minutes to twelve’ someone announced

She pushed herself off the wall

Weaving through the crowd

Eyes scanning the room for the one she wanted to find

’10, 9, 8’, the countdown began

She spun around in circles, desperate

‘7, 6, 5’, Where could they be?

‘4, 3, 2’, Arms enveloped her in their sweet embrace

‘Happy New Year’ whispered softly in her ear
