At midnight, he'll propose a toast
and raise to them a fluted glass
as they gaze, muted, at their host.

Though in his eye may sting a tear,
he knows theirs will stay dry, en masse,
as they ring in the coming year.

That he alone bears witness to
this cheerless savoir-fair, is clear
but he's forgot (or never knew)

such camaraderie, at most,
is retrospect to spirits here,
where every guest is but a ghost...

At midnight, he'll propose a toast
that he alone bears witness to...
