Sipping life slowly leaves a sweet aftertaste
of such dear memories saved for a rainy day.
Life after all is there to enjoy and not waste
in trivialities meant to pass by and not stay.
Sunrises are the best in the brightest morning
opening my eyes to a clarity left from dreams
with sounds and vivid images my day adorning
in my mind I prepare for another day schemes.
Reasons to be alive are many before hidden
in shadows chosen to obscure my gentle mind
if youthful days were left empty or unridden
now later at my age I enjoy the beauty I find.
So let’s toast for more of our wonderful years
and sip life slowly tasting every single sunrise
let’s leave behind the questions and the fears
willing to embrace life as we look up and rise.
