Auld Lang Syne

Tribute to one of the best poems/songs ever written and other things too..

Ask, tell, hush and dance in desire
For reminiscent reasons, don’t write me back
Our days were few and great
For nostalgia’s goodness, remember me like long ago

Sip a cup of tea and have wassail in my name
Bake a strawberry muffin and some French biscuits
Have some ice cream not for one but two
Have a celebration for me, have one for you

Don’t wait up at night in regret
Don’t drown in quicksand depression
Live your life and dream a cup of kindness shared
For the days of long, long ago

Should old acquaintance be forgot?
And never brought to mind
Should old acquaintance be forgot?
And the days of auld lang syne….
Tomi Olugbemi

  1. I loooooooooooooooooooove this song!!! i think its one of those scottish songs, and they sing it in america just before the new year or right into the new year I suppose. Have you seen Its a Wonderful Life, its an old movie though, black and white but that was where it got played. And then New Year’s Eve. I couldn’t help but download Lea Michele’s version of the song. It’s a sweet and beautiful.
    Thanks for sharing with us.

    1. Yes it is Scottish. No I haven’t seen that, not yet. I didn’t know there was a Lea Michelle version. Was it on glee or a solo project? My secondary school principal made us learn it, it has remained with me since ever since. It truly is a beautiful song. Thank you for reading it 🙂
