Giving us a reason to be together, and re-unite
Homes fragrant with the aroma of
flowers, vibrant, lit up and bright
Welcoming the auspicious time with excitement

Cheerfulness and chatter fill the evening air
Celebrations bring us closer, year after year
Sing,dance,rejoice and wash away the worries
These moments of happiness make for a
lifetime of memories
Permanent,cant fade away the long lasting ties
