You need to subscribe to steam now since your license has expired, you will then down load a temporary demo license untill your your current one can be verified, at which point as you will auto download portions of the new (very soon to be released) half life 2. your new will be included with it, at which point you will be sent (via e-mail) a key activation code verification authorization link that you must click on to verify your correct e-mail address allowing your new key activation code to be sent to you via steam. Just kidding.
