Raise Your Glass


Well done

Look about

And see how far

Your have come to date

So much left to do, yes

But so much more was tackled

The paths are clearer if not straight

But that leaves room for new adventures

And new reasons to say the words well done

The Who of You

Oh, the gift of mercy

When one chooses the ride

Beyond the great divide

On wings of love

Allowing freedom’s peace

To court an open heart

To accept from the start

Their true beauty

Honor Able

Muster all your courage

Look yourself in the eye

Know you’ll do more than try

To love yourself

Because this is your job

It must come from inside

And Spirit will provide

The strength you need

Heed the soul’s call within

To seek your harbor safe

In your choices, have faith

Then you’ll be home

precious pluck

Be gentle with yourself

You do the best you can

You’ll find your greatest fan

Is your own life

You were born with the strength

There may be times you’ll cry

Shake your head, wonder why

Feeling you’re weak

Oh, quite the contrary

Your tears are not a flaw

They show you’ve courage raw

To just show up
