It’s Just Another New Year’s Eve 

“Sir Happy New Year po. Sali po kayo sa amin. Nandun po sila doc. May konting salo salo lang for the New Year.”

The nurse who had been taking care of his wife is already worried of the man who never left the side of the woman who has been comatose for quite sometime now.

The man with tired and somber face just nodded his head and sadly smiled at the nurse to acknowledge her greeting.

Just this morning, she had checked his blood pressure and he was given medication. He was weak but still she could see him trying his best to be strong for his wife.

“Sige na. I’ll just stay here. Okay lang ako. Please tell the doctors and your companions Happy New Year.”

“Ah sige po. Pero Sir kailangan nyo na rin pong magpahinga. Mahina pa po kayo at yun blood pressure nyo hindi pa rin stable.”

“Okay lang ako. I will rest in a while.”

“Sige po Sir. Tawagan nyo na lang po ako if you need something.”


But before the nurse left, another nurse entered the room with food for him.

“Sir eto po, konting handa lang po kasi nagsalo-salo kami doon sa nurse’s station.”

He was so moved with the gesture that his eyes automatically turned misty.

“Sige pakilagay na lang sa table. Thank you.” He tried his best to smile. He didnt want the two nurses to feel bad.

“Happy New Year po ulit Sir.”

They they left him with his wife.


Richard Lim sat at the chair beside his wife’s bed. He was lovingly staring at the woman who meant the world to him. He was gently caressing her face.

“Sweetheart, happy new year!” He gently kissed her forehead then held her hand tightly while kissing it reverently showing how much he misses her.

“Alam mo, this morning, Emman and Edz visited you. May dala silang mga snow globes from other countries na napuntahan nila. Edz said favorite mo raw kasi ang mga ito. They wanted to spend New Year’s here but they have a flight sweetheart.”

“Si Emman, he was so funny because one time raw while doing the demo in the plane, he realized that there was this actor, Coco Martin, on his flight. Ayun di daw siya makaconcentrate and he was sweating profusely daw. ” Richard was forcing himself to laugh at the stories he was telling her.

No matter how hard he tried, he couldn’t mask the sadness he felt knowing that his wife couldn’t hear him and wouldn’t respond to him.

“Si Nanay ayun umuwi kasi dapat raw may tao sa bahay kapag New Year. Nandun si Tatay Arturo and Sky is with them. They will be back later.

Sky – The moment he mentioned Sky’s name, his eyes automatically got misty. It is their three year old son’s birthday today.

Three years ago, when his wife met at accident, he was seven months pregnant with Sky.

He couldn’t forget the vivid events that took place three years ago, which never ceases to haunt him in his sleep and even while awake.


It was December 31 and he should be home with his wife to prepare for the New Year.

Richard and Maya had been married for a little over a year during that time. They were with Manang Fe, his long time nanny. They were living in their mansion in Pasig which, is now where Maya’s parents had been staying ever since she slipped into a coma.

Richard never stayed home since then.

Three years ago, morning of December 31, Richard couldn’t fly back to Manila.

He was in Cebu that time meeting some investors for his newly opened “Sky Aviation School in Cebu”.

Due to bad weather, his flight had been delayed.

Maya was seven months pregnant that time and she had been extremely moody, emotional and easily upset. Ricky understood her and he had been very understanding of his wife’s mood but that certain day, he’s had enough that instead of just listening to his wife’s rants over the phone, he argued back.

Due to exhaustion, frustration that his flight had been delayed, worry for his pregnant wife and the need to be home and be with her, Ricky instead got into an argument with Maya while on the phone.

His plane was able to leave at the later part of the day. Unknown to him, his wife took a cab to see him at the airport. She has been extremely jealous of Alex. She learned that one of the investors who showed interest in Sky Aviation School was the father of Richard’s ex-girlfriend Alexandra.

It was the reason of their argument and instead of understanding his wife, Ricky even engaged in it. Maya was extremely upset, irrational and emotional but since she couldn’t force their driver Joma to accompany her to the airport since Ricky gave instructions that Maya shouldn’t be allowed to go out due to her condition, Maya sneaked out and hailed a cab instead.

Richard’s plane landed around 8 pm and he was actually relieved to finally be back home and be able to celebrate New Year with his wife.

He was able to realize that he was at fault and he needs to make it up to his wife. He even called a florist to deliver sunflowers to his wife right in time or the New Year’s celebration.

He was excited and he missed her badly.

Three days in Cebu is long enough that he missed her so much already.

However, in that same flight , Alexandra was with Richard. No it wasn’t intentional. Alex was supposed to be in yesterday’s flight with her father but her dad asked her to stay and wait for some business-related documents to be signed by their partners in Cebu.

Alex remained a good friend of Richard and though Maya was so jealous of her, Richard remained civil and friendly with her. He didn’t see anything wrong with it besides he loves his wife so much. Alex has also been very vocal of her admiration for Richard and his wife. Alex has a fiancee already and even informed Richard that he and Maya is invited to her wedding which will happen very soon.

Richard was with Alex as they both proceeded to Joma who was there to fetch Richard. Since Alex didn’t have someone to fetch her, Richard offered her a ride home. It was the right thing to do.

Little did he know, Maya was in the area to witness all of these- him helping Alex with her luggage, him escorting Alex to where Joma was waiting for them.

The moment Alex settled at the back seat of his car,  an angry and furious Maya approached a very surprised Richard.

She was unreasonable and though Alex joined in explaining things to Maya, she just walked away from her husband.

Maya rushed  towards the direction of the parked taxicabs at the airport

A very worried Richard ran after her but since she was blinded by tears and was aimlessly running to get away from her husband, Maya didn’t notice the approaching car…..

A familiar song playing on the radio in Maya’s room, interrupted his thoughts.

Don’t look so sad,
It’s not so bad you know.

It’s just another night,
That’s all it is.
It’s not the first,
It’s not the worst you know,
We’ve come through all the rest,
We’ll get through this.

We’ve made mistakes,
But we’ve made good friends too.
Remember all the nights we spent with them?
And all our plans,
Who says they can’t come true?
Tonight’s another chance to start again.

It’s just another New Year’s Eve,
Another night like all the rest.
It’s just another New Year’s Eve,
Let’s make it the best.
It’s just another New Year’s Eve,
It’s just another Auld Lang Syne,
But when we’re through this New Year
You’ll see, will be
Just fine.

We’re not alone, we’ve got the world you know.
And it won’t let us down, just wait and see.
And we’ll grow old, but think how wise we’ll grow.
There’s more you know, it’s only New Year’s Eve.

It’s just another New Year’s Eve,
Another night like all the rest.
It’s just another New Year’s Eve,
Let’s make it the best.
It’s just another New Year’s Eve,
It’s just another Auld Lang Syne,
But when we’re through this New Year, you’ll see, will be
Just fine.

As he was listening to the song, Richard was silently crying…

“Sweetheart please wake up. I miss you so much already. Please naman Maya.”


Bukas yun sunod.

Vote pa rin and try to trend ha!
