Here’s To Your Brand New Day

September 12, 2011

Here’s to the life you always wanted to live–
the one up on the top shelf
that goes down without a burn.

Here’s to every living thing
you took the time and had the pleasure
to stand and glow beside.

Here’s to the beauty,
and oh, what the hell, the heartache too–
’cause life can’t write you a ballad
without ever having scribbled through the sadness.

Yes, here’s to your brand new day,
standing in its Sunday best,
arm extended,
waiting for this next dance.
