Toast to Life

Here’s to life and living
The road traveled
and the road not taken
Here’s to life and living
The story told
and the story unspoken
Here’s to life and living
The ups that are mourned
and the downs that’s celebrated
Here’s to life and living
The until further notice love
and the standing by for pain
Here’s to life
A war
A movement
A frame of mind.

Here’s to life and living
The thunder that stunned
the lightening that marveled
The rained-on parade
the stormed-on dream.
Here’s to life and living
The ugly truth
and the beautiful lie
Here’s to life and living
The birth of
The death of
The evolution of
The crippling of

Here’s to life and living
The slow and easy
The fast and furious
Here’s to life
A seed
A season
A frame of time…

The after-hours of life
The after-taste of living

Here’s to what life is/was given/giving
Here’s to a life still worth living
