Africa’s sweetheart, and hollywood’s new “it” girl Lupita Nyong’o is giving us something to smile about this holiday season. The Kenyan actress made history this year as the first black African to win an Oscar, but if there were Oscars for poetry, she would probably earn one too.

On Monday, Lupita surprised her fans with a sweet, heartfelt poem about her awesome year and thanked them for their support and loyalty.

Below is the poem in its entirety:

This year was one of a kind,
And a kind one to me.
There was lots to be done,
And a whole lot to see.
I had family and friends,
And colleagues galore,
Now I have fans,
Plus a million and four!
You tweet and you post,
And you instagram too.
You chat, comment, draw,
You just do what you do.
And though I don’t answer ‘Cause time is a-tickin’, Know that you matter
By the posts that I’m pickin’. I keep posting ‘Cause I know that you care,
And I care to post
When I know that you’re there.
So this season,
Though I know your name not,
I’m happy I got you,
And that I gave what you got.
I wish for you peace,
Love, joy, laughter beams,
And in the new year,
May you live out your dreams!
(And as Dr. Seuss says:)
“If things start happening,
don’t worry, don’t stew,
just go right along
and you’ll start happening too.”
Love, Lupita N.

2015 promises to be a great year for Lupita, as she will be starring in the much anticipated film “Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens“. We cannot wait to see her in action again, and oh yes, happy holidays to you too Lupita.
