I wish you all success and happiness,
in this Thingyan and new year;
Leave behind the past strife and stress,
move on forwards without fear.


May all you find permanent pleasure,
no sorrows shall ever touch you;
Take advantage of this short leisure,
and do some good deeds too.


No sin is remained after this festival,
as water can't stay on water-lilies;
Thingyan is the happiest time for all,
that we may meet our families.
